Our ambition:

  • Ensure the influence of 3AF in the region covered by the Groupe Régional Poitou (departments 16, 17, 79 and 86);
  • Relay 3AF's activities, particularly to companies and institutions, aerospace professionals and students;
  • Design regional events, either directly or in partnership with other organizations.

Our areas of action:

  • Represent 3AF and lead the network of members locally;
  • Promote 3AF regionally in institutions, companies, research centers, schools and universities;
  • Facilitating and promoting the work of "Ingénieurs Pour l'Ecole" (Engineers for Schools), who work in secondary schools, with the support of local education authorities;
  • Recruit new members;
  • Promote aerospace careers to students;
  • Support a regional student antenna;
  • Develop cooperation with regional bodies and organizations.

How we work :

  • The life of our Regional Group, of which members are informed by e-mail;
  • Conferences and study days, aimed at a wider audience, to review the state of the art and provide an overview of a given theme;
  • Regularregional events (conferences, plant tours, etc.).

Our targets:

  • Engineers, managers and technicians from manufacturers, equipment suppliers and subcontractors in the aerospace sector;
  • Companies in the same sector;
  • Schools and universities and their students interested in the aerospace industry and the various professions it offers, both technical and non-technical;
  • Aerospace enthusiasts.

Our organization:

The Groupe Régional has been based at the Futuroscope site since 2004, benefiting at the same time from the strong potential represented by the ENSMA (one of the three French schools, along with the ISA) and the ISAE (one of the three French schools, along with the ISAE).schools with ISAE and ENAC) and research laboratories (now grouped under the Institut PPRIME) with a strong aerospace focus. Our main activities include conferences, company visits, national educational programs based around the EOLIA wind tunnel, "Jeudis de l'Aéro", regular (bimonthly) meetings co-organized by 3AF-DIRECCTE to structure the regional industry and, of course, the organization of AEROTOP. The Poitou Regional Group is characterized by a very strong representation of "young people", all ENSMA engineering students.
