Fighter pilot with just the baccalaureate

Think you need advanced math and higher math to become an air force pilot?

You’ll see things differently after reading “Pilote de chasse avec seulement le bac” (“Fighter pilot with just the baccalaureate”). This book describes the journey of Alain Maubert, who managed to achieve his dream in 1986, when he entered the French Air Force, qualifying on the Alpha Jet.

Now a Boeing 777 pilot for Air France, Alain has flown many ultra-powerful aircraft, such as the Epsilon, the Fouga Magister, the Mirage F1 and the Mirage 2000.

An unbelievable career, flight after flight, mission after mission…
