My name is Marie, I am a student pilot at CAE. I studied space engineering in Paris,
France and worked 2 years as an aerospace engineer in Madrid, Spain. I designed
mechanical boxes for rockets and satellites as well as mechanical systems on an
electrical aircraft.I always dreamed to be a pilot but I preferred to have a degree before entering a flight school.
I am passionate about mechanical sports in general. I drive motorbikes since I was 16
and have my own since then. I also volunteer at the Automobile Club of Monaco as a
track marshal since 2015 for Formula 1, F2, Porsche Cup and Formula Renault at the
Grand Prix de Monaco.
I travelled a lot since I was very young. I have been in America, China, North Africa and
all around Europe with my family. When I grew up I started to travel with my friends
again all around Europe and especially in Spain where I lived 3 years. So I always
travelled and that is part of me, to move around and discover new places.
I then started my flight training in integrated with CAE as an airline cadet pilot. Ground
school was meant to be 7 months; actually it took a bit more to do the EASAs exams
(because of lockdowns and travel restrictions). So I started ground school in Madrid in
August 2019 and met a lot of new people. Ground school is pretty intense and needs
hard work but it is worth it. I was able to finish my last exams not so long time ago and I
really feel relieved now I did it (all 14).
Now I am enjoying some free time at home and I am looking forward to start the
Commercial Pilot License in Phoenix, Arizona – which should start early January 2021
