The 2009 edition of "Fly to your dream" held at Florennes airbase on april 8th was a real success. More than 250 young people went to the base to discover all the jobs proposed by the Belgian Air Component. The visitors could visiting many departement of the base like engine shop, fire brigade, flight simulator and many other aspect of an airbase. There was also a possibility for some of the young people to perform a flight in Agusta helicopter or with an Embraer transport aircraft. The ones who wins the Embraer flight had also the great chance to be escorted by two F-16A/M fighter aircrafts. It was certainly a great day for the ones who decided to get at the base, self with a bad weather in the afternoon.

 

We would like to thank the people of COMOPSAIR/IPR  for granting us this report.
