Flying West - Aeronautical Passion on Campus West
With 90 members, this association is mainly a group of enthusiasts aiming to help as many people as possible discover the world of aeronautics and share their passion.
Flying West works in 4 areas:
- Discovery: Throughout the year, the association offers a range of student activities: Initiations on various aircraft (ULM, glider, plane, aerobatic glider, etc.), tours of interesting aeronatical sites (A380 assembly line in St Nazaire, aeronaval base, etc.).
- Promotion: Flying West is committed to promoting aeronautics to the public through BIA courses for secondary school students in Laval, classes on aviation in primary schools, Sick Children Days, etc.
- Training: Flying is a pleasure that not everyone can afford. For this reason, Flying West has developed partnerships with aeroclubs and ULM clubs in the Laval region, to offer pilot training at affordable prices.
- Construction: With the “Demoiselle” project, this section was created to allow all members of Flying West to take part in concrete, motivating student projects. After building a flight simulator from an old twin-engine plane: a Piper Azteq, the members are now restoring a flying replica of a 1903 Santos-Dumont airship
