Training Together

Bonjour! We are Chloé Billon and Victor Bouchart and we're both cadets from the same class at the European Airline Academy in Ponte de Sor, Portugal. As it’s Valentine’s Day, the school invited us to share the story of how we met through aviation.

Hi! My name is Cláudio, senior Captain for Azores Airlines, and I am originally from Madeira Island, Portugal. As of this year, it is 20 years since I first stepped into Aerocondor flight School, now known as L3Harris European Airline Academy. I am also celebrating ten years since I was promoted to Captain within Azores airlines.

Cadet to Flight Instructor to Airline Pilot

Since I can remember I used to tell everyone about how I wanted to become a pilot, and to be honest I don’t even know how it started in the first place. It is intrinsic to me and as such I can’t describe the exact feeling I have when I think about flying or even when I fly.
