Course Details

Objectives: The experimental Flight Test Engineering Master is a course organized by ISAE and EPNER aiming at providing either Flight Test Governmental organizations or Aircraft manufacturers with high-qualified test pilots and flight test engineers.
The original spirit of this program is to prepare pilots and engineers to work in integrated team.
This Master develop theoretical and applied skills of experienved pilots and engineers for the preparation, implementation and report of flight test either of aircraft or complex embedded systems, in the safety conditions.
After graduation, these skilled professionals are able to participate to civilian certification of new or modified aircraft, to aircraft equipment development program, to military acceptance program, either fixed-wing or rotary-wing.

Intended for: Engineers or pilots must be accepted by ENPR before apply their application to this Master

Degree Level (EU) : 7 - (EQC level or equivalent)

Prerequisites: Adequate command of spoken and written French required for admission

Admission requirements: Applicants must possess a Master degree, or an equivalent degree in science or engineering, or a bachelor degree.
Pilots with at least 1200 flight hours,
Engineers with at least 100 flight hours.

Duration and terms: One year full time.
2-months courses in basis sciences and French aeronautical communication skills at ISAE-SUPAERO in Toulouse
10-months Experimental Flight Test course, for fixed-wing or rotor-wing for pilots and engineers given at EPNER in Istres.
