Testimony of Nicolas Tenoux, Airbus airline Pilot
I have joined the Aero Club in 2001 while I was high school student. My goal was to achieve my dream and become an airline Pilot. I was looking for an organization to give me strong basic skills and also a flexible one, in order to manage both my studies and my training in aviation. From day one I have enjoyed the professionalism of Flight Instructors of the club.
Jean-Michel took care of me, and in July 2002 I got my PPL/A Licence before starting a MSc in aviation course. After graduation, I work one year as airline Quality Manager. In May 2002, dream come true because I start to fly as a commercial pilot on Cessna Citation Jet.
I am currently flying Airbus A320/A321 and everyday I am grateful towards the Aero Club and all the skills it gave me. I keep flying and participate to the life of this air club from Rueil-Malmaison city.
