Robert Piché is Quebec’s most well-known pilot. He became famous in 2001 when he safely landed an Airbus A330 in the Azores after it lost all power due to fuel exhaustion, an experience that was the subject of a 2010 biographical film. Pierre Donais speaks with Mr. Piché, who is retiring in 2017.
Drawing on four decades of radio and TV experience, Pierre has a reputation for being as personable as he is astute. He joined CPAC in 2003 to host Revue Politique, a nightly review of the day’s politics for Francophone viewers. He also delves into the personal with guests on Tête à Tête. A former anchor and journalist at TQS and Télémédia CIMF-FM in Outaouais, Pierre also served as radio host and station manager. He has recently completed his Master’s degree in law at the University of Ottawa.
