  • For French students, you might also pass the "Brevet d'Initiation Aéronautique" it is a French national diploma issued by the French Education System. It will be included in your school file like the "brevet des collèges" or the "baccalauréat".

This complet training is taught by Ambassadair's passionate and educational pilots within the FWA training.

Introduction

The FWA is an excellent way to discover the aviation world and all the jobs related to it, in order to better decide on your academic orientation. The FWA is open to all ! The program is designed for students of all ages: scientists and literary scholars, girls and boys! For students who already have a career plan in aviation, it provides them with solid knowledge and puts them in contact with aviation professionals. For students who are undecided, it enriches their general knowledge, enhances their CV and opens their eyes to careers they might not have thought of. The FWA can reveal a passion!

It is also a unique opportunity to fly an aircraft and discover the sensations of flying. We insist... This is not a first flight but a real initiation flight which will put the student in front of the reality, in full safety. For those who want to go higher, the french BIA diploma allows its holder, under certain conditions, to obtain grants from the French Aeronautical Federation in order to prepare the private pilot's license. These "Youth Objective" bonuses pay for about one third of the private pilot training.
