The training allows the transmission of complete theoretical knowledge and specific to the sciences and techniques that can be used to understand the principles of ground flight on a simulator.

  • How are the studies organized?
    • The courses take place at the Ecole de l'Air de Salon for the military and at POLYAERO Hautes-Alpes for the civilians. The teaching team comes from the University of Aix-Marseille, the Ecole de l'Air de Salon de Provence and professionals from the aeronautics industry.
    • The courses are divided into 4 modules over a period of 3 months, for a total of 255 hours.
    • The teaching methods are diversified: theoretical courses, tutorials, concrete case studies. This diversity must be brought to each seminar and implies the active participation of the students. The control of knowledge is continuous.

    • UE 4 : Navigation
  • For which skills?

    Students trained in this manner will have developed the skills to:

    • Check the flight record, the flight plan, the technical data of the aircraft and check the fuel level and the weather conditions
    • Proceed to the controls and preparation of the cockpit, equipment and airframe materials with the cabin crew
    • Transmit and exchange flight information with the flight crew and technical personnel on the ground
    • Organize or supervise on-board operations (loading, passenger reception, etc.) and implement emergency measures in case of problems
    • Carry out the operations of flight, piloting and landing of the aircraft and proceed to the technical checks at each stage
    • Control the navigation and operating parameters of the aircraft in flight and adapt the flight plan in liaison with the air traffic control centers
    • Establish the various end-of-flight reports and transmit them to the relevant department.

The DU "Principles of flight simulation" is a diploma of direct professional insertion. The objective of this diploma is to train people from an operational point of view for a targeted job in the aeronautical industry (tests, drone piloting, etc.).
