Jean-Luc JaboulayParis, France
I joined the Air Force in 1987 as a student pilot, and got my licence in 1990.
After having flown C160 Transall for five years with a lot of different destinations, I joined the Air Transport School in Avord Air Base as an instructor. I spent there 5 years flying EMB121 Xingu and assuming respectively the tasks of squadron leader, chief of Operations, and chief of the ground school.
I left Avord to Djibouti where I was affected to the head quarter of the French Forces in Djibouti, and I delt with Maritime and Air Transport management.
Getting back to France, I returned to Salon-de-Provence AFB as an ATPL Theory knowledge teacher, and then as the chief of the Special Course for Officers.
Since september 2007, I'm in the French Air Force Headquarter in Paris.
I'm in charge of standardization for the french air force. Therefore I work with standardization agencies (AFNOR, BNAé, CEN, ...), industrial partners, and also at an international level (NATO, European Defense Agency,...).
I'm also the head of the airworthiness division at the FAF HQ, having to put in place the whole airworthiness system for french air force aircrafts.
I'm still flying, maintaining my CPL/IR (multi-engine) licence, with a frozen ATPL. I flew more than 3700 hours. I scored 950 at the TOEIC test in may 2008, and I got the FCL1.028 Level 4 in june 2008.
