Nouvel Air is a modern and very welcoming drop zone.  It was founded in 1991 by Michel Lemay, Daniel Paquette and Normand Pressé in Farnham, Canada, on the south shore of Montreal.  The dropzone started as a Cessna drop zone, but has developed tremendously in the last years to now operate a Twin Otter and a Cessna Caravan.  Also, since 2013, Nouvel Air is the only dropzone in Québec to have a competitive-size swoop pond and has hosted the 2015 CP World Cup as well as the 2016 CP World Championships.  Nouvel Air is proud to have a reputation of welcoming any type of jumps and having a high level of instructors and fun jumpers.

Flight-1 Instructors Martin & Benoit "Ben" Lemay are no strangers to Nouvel Air.  Carrying on the Lemay legacy, both have served as an integral part of the growth at Nouvel Air, following in their parents footsteps.  

Not only are the Lemay brothers part of the Flight-1 family, they also represented Canada in three different disciplines at the 2016 World Championships - Canopy Piloting, VFS and 4-Way FS - which speaks volumes to what all round talents they are.
