Flight Training in the UK

by Rémi Pouedras on Oct 21 2020
Hello, my name is Rémi Pouedras, I am part of the Air France Cadet program at L3Harris.

I have dreamt of becoming a pilot since early in my childhood, but it is only later that I started flying and gliding in my spare time while in engineering school. After having passed the AF cadets selection, I joined L3Harris for the ground school, which was six months of very intense training, but also rewarding intellectually.

I am currently in the middle of the foundation flight phase which I think has been the most enjoyable part of the training so far. Notably with the start of solo flights and cross- country navigations.

It is a great opportunity for us to be part of the L3Harris training alongside other international cadets and instructors. Making use of the challenging UK VFR weather conditions and of the different centres (Bournemouth and Cranfield) to build up our experience.
