Wednesday 24 January, under ideal weather conditions, the Itxassou Gliding Center (CVV), in cooperation with Major Dupuy's Air and Space Force Recruitment Office in Pau, organized an introductory flight session. It's about six general and vocational high school students from St. Joseph High School in Hasparin presenting their Initiation Aviation Certificate (BIA).
This class, led by Marichu Audrain, teacher and BIA resource at Saint Joseph High School, and Tanguy Daru, history and geography teacher, was enthusiastic. General Jean-Patrick Javier, who was also present, confirms that everything went well: “The young trainees were smiling from ear to ear as they descended from their flight in silence. They were accompanied by magnificent griffon vultures atop the mountains overlooking our land. »
To successfully complete these six flights, he was supported by experienced pilots Jean Lancet and Andre Saparots. Carol Yvonne, principal of St. Joseph High School, wanted to personally thank General Jean-Patrick Gayard. “I could not make myself available but thank you for welcoming some of our students to the BIA workshop and allowing them to dream and create desires for their personal or professional future. We know that in this day and age we must open the field of possibilities to them,” she wrote in a letter.
One thing is certain, Aoihan, Mattie, Xian, Hugo, Kantin and Clement will remember this afternoon full of emotions, which might give them the desire to continue on this path. The aim of this day is to prepare for the BIA and introduce people to the careers and training associated with this sector.
This year, at least 7 girls and 15 boys are studying in the classroom. Last year, results of 76% admissions, including 62% with honors, confirm the growing enthusiasm as the Air and Space Forces collaborate with national education to attract them as much as possible.
