Fourth session of the Aerospace Leadership Development training

Training the future leaders of the international aerospace industry in order to turn them into focal points favorable to the French industry is one of IAS historical missions. This has been recently and most significantly illustrated by the appointment on the 1st of September of Mr. Madhavan, who attended the 2014 session of the Aerospace Leadership Development program, as Chief Executive Officer of the Indian company Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL). As chance would have it, this appointment took place as the fourth session of this training was being implemented. Managed by Etienne Fleury, Key Account Manager in charge of Asia-Pacific, and by Agathe Langlois, International Operations Manager, this program, designed for executives, met once again the requirements of our Indian customer. The two-week training session, implemented in Paris, Bordeaux, Toulouse and Marseille, was designed for 31 professionals willing to enhance their knowledge in leadership and innovation management. The program included a total of 60 training hours delivered by experts from Airbus, Airbus Helicopters and from the coaching company Ansor, as well as six industrial visits (Snecma, Dassault Aviation, Liebherr Aerospace, Airbus Commercial, Thales Avionics, and Airbus Helicopters). Innovative and atypical venues such as IoT Valley or the new L63 Airbus building offered a training environment perfectly suited to the participants’ expectations, and the closing ceremony took place at the prestigious Mas de Fauchon restaurant.
