AEROCAMPUS Aquitaine is a Part-147 approved aerospace training campus and is the only one of its kind in Europe which offers all training courses for all levels and all types of students. AEROCAMPUS Aquitaine provides initial training, from Bac professionnel (vocational A-levels) to BTS (advanced vocational training certificate), either through educational training or apprenticeship, and continuing vocational training in aircraft maintenance.
AEROCAMPUS Aquitaine is situated near Bordeaux, on a 26-hectare site. Due to its size, it can be used to host conferences or seminars, and it also offers many training facilities (class rooms, multipurpose rooms, aviation workshops, technical platforms, aircraft hangars, etc.) and innovative training tools (immersive virtual reality room, A320 maintenance simulator, etc.).
The campus is installed in a wooded park with a 13th century castle. Its goal is to tailor the training offered to the needs of companies, initiate new projects in new sectors (Data Space Campus | The Bateau des Métiers) and promote the level of excellence of the aviation sector in the Aquitaine region. Formerly a site of the French Ministry of Defence, the campus is now the property of the Conseil régional d’Aquitaine (the regional council of Aquitaine) and it is operated by the AEROCAMPUS Aquitaine association.
