Let us present two female pilots of La Compagnie. As March 8 approaches, the company celebrates the journey of two of its female talents. Special bonus for girls dreaming of aviation - their precious advice to. be successful as a pilot:
EMMA - A pilot in her soul
Her journey : The granddaughter of an aeronautical engineer from a passionate family, when Emma was 6 years old, she already wanted to become an airline pilot.
A dream she thinks will collapse at the age of 15 when she learns that she must wear corrective lenses, an eliminatory criterion for this job. To stay close to her passion, Emma became a traffic officer. A few years later, learning that prescription glasses are now authorized, she began her airline pilot training in 2004 and graduated in 2011.
She started her career in Casablanca for a few months for Royal Air Maroc. She then joined Air Méditerranée, her first French contract, to finally convince La Compagnie to recruit her. Its family structure and very welcoming immediately seduced her. Emma is also a shop steward there. She appreciates being able to federate her pilot colleagues and establish a soothing social dialogue with management.
Her advice: Have confidence in yourself and your dreams.
AMANDINE - An aerobatic road
Her journey : Amandine comes from an aviation family, the daughter and granddaughter of pilots.
She first discovered theft at the age of 14 in a glider. When she was 15 years old, she tried to join the army to become a fighter pilot. Unfortunately not being selected, she decided to start training in the civilian sector, as a private pilot in the USA, then joined professional training in England.
At the same time, she discovered a passion for aerobatics, which she has been practicing in competition for a few years. Amandine started out as a co-pilot aboard La Compagnie, the first company that gave her a chance, to her delight! Amandine has also been a member for several years of the American association of women pilots "Ninety-Nines".
Her advice: Never be discouraged, there is more than one way to get there!
