Aviation fans take note: Air Force Base 113 Saint-Dizier (Haute-Marne) will be holding open days on 18 and 19 June 2011. A variety of aircraft, old and new, civil and military, will be on display on the tarmac and in the air. And the mascot of AB 113 is none other than… Commandant Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (the writer and pilot served here from December 1939 to June 1940).
To mark the occasion, the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation is inviting a group of 40 young people from the « Maison Saint-Exupéry » in Meudon (a young people’s home run by the Fondation Apprentis d’Auteuil) to share in this extraordinary event and find out more about what the aeronautics industry has to offer in terms of job prospects.
If you would like more information about the Foundation, pay a visit to their stand for full information on the Foundation’s work on behalf of children in difficulty around the world.
Your next date with the Foundation will be at the Le Bourget Air Show (from 20 to 26 June): more news to follow shortly.
