A Field Trip for Students in Quebec

Visit the Complexe Capitale Hélicoptère and its unique Discovery Space

The Discovery Space is located at the Complexe Capitale Hélicoptère in Quebec City and offers unique educational activities for everyone!

In addition to programs tailored for the primary and secondary schools, Complexe Capitale Hélicoptère is also opened to cadets, scouts and day camps. The Complex is equipped with several interactive terminals, which also makes it an interesting activity for younger children. Helistoria, for example, tells the story of a helicopter. During the visit of the Complex, kids have full access to interactive stations at the Discovery Space; they get to experience a real RC helicopter and witness flight simulator demonstrations by a helicopter pilot. Comprehensive tour of all the facilities with a pilot is also part of the program.

Educational rally adapted to different age groups, helps consolidate the information provided during the visit. In order to encourage students to participate, certificates are offered to formalize their visit at the Complex. Furthermore, participants who answer questions correctly will have chance to win gift certificates valid for minutes on the flight simulator. In this way, students can test their skills as a helicopter pilot during their next visit.

In addition to many interesting activities offered at the Complexe Capitale Hélicoptère, you can link student’s new experiences to class curriculum and certain subjects discussed in class.

In fact, several skills and abilities are being tested during the visit at the Complexe. For example, intellectual, methodological and problem solving skills as well as teamwork and critical judgment are exercised. The following topics are part of the program: science, technology (kiosks, simulator, mechanical, aerospace, IT), geography (civil, industrial and tourist vocation of the helicopter), and history. Participants can also learn about the jobs within the helicopter industry, such as pilots, mechanics and others.
