ORAJe at the Villacoublay air base
October 9th, 2023
Throwback to an extraordinary morning at Villacoublay #airbase!
The visit highlighted the activities of ET60, an #AirForce unit whose main mission is to provide transportation for the President and the Ministry of the Armed Forces, as well as medical evacuation for military personnel and civilians.
The ET60 is equipped with an A330-200, 3 Super Puma helicopters and 6 Falcons (2 7X, 2 2000Lx and 2 900A). Visitors were able to tour the Falcon 900 in medical configuration.
This fantastic opportunity was offered by the BIA unit of Formation Administrative 117, a long-time partner of ORAJe under the leadership of Colonel Didier Halter. Their mission is to teach aeronautics in middle and high schools in the Paris region. A wonderful initiative to inspire new #vocations!
Several ORAJe members, all volunteers, are involved in this educational program. In fact, 3 of them have taken on even more responsibilities: Etienne Bobin, Héloïse Conte and Cédric MATHIEU are respectively in charge of operational coordination, communication and course coordination.
