presentation of BIA - Brevet d'Initiation Aéronautique
The BIA is a diploma issued by the National Education which aims to introduce young people to the different components of aeronautics and space, whether for your leisure or to consider a professional orientation. It is most often prepared within a flying club or high school with courses but also flights in an airplane, microlight or glider, and visits to aeronautical sites such as a military air base, an aeronautical construction site or the tower airport control. At the end of the year, the students pass the Aeronautical Initiation Certificate consisting of five tests in the form of a MCQ. A total of 100 questions on Meteorology and aerology, Aerodynamics, aerostatics and principles of flight, Study of aircraft and spacecraft, Navigation, regulations, flight safety, History and culture of aeronautics and space. AND an optional aviation English test. More information from your nearest flying club, from your school if you are a college or high school student, or from the CIRAS of your academy.
