With more than 25 years of experience in journalism, publishing, tourism and the cultural community, Louise Bourbonnais Foster has a track record of various experiences, each more rewarding than the next.
Passionate about aviation, very young, she wanted to become an airplane pilot. At 19, she obtained her private pilot license and two years later her commercial pilot license. She then completed various aerotechnical training courses, including civil aviation crash investigations at the Southern California Safety Institute. Over the past 25 years, she has trained on different types of aircraft and has logged hundreds of hours of flight time.
Her passion for aviation led her to write a first book in 1998, Marie-Soleil, a biography of the Quebec actress, Marie-Soleil Tougas, who tragically died with the filmmaker Jean-Claude Lauzon, in a plane crash. The book quickly became a major bestseller in Quebec.
Her field of interest in aviation and her experience opened the doors to Bombardier Aerospace, where she was Editor-in-Chief of aeronautical publications for the company for several years.
