In Albi, Tarn, a group of teenagers have realise their dream in an airfield hangar.

They have built an aircraft, supported by the association “ Constructeurs Aéronefs Jeunes".

Every Saturday the dedicated teenagers have been building their aircraft piece by piece.

The project was organised by Alain Flament, an aeronautics enthusiast who has built an aircraft himself. He decided to share his passion with young people and created the association “ Constructeurs Aéronefs Jeunes ".

This isn’t the first aircraft to be built by the association. A group of youngsters who are now students or aeronautical employees built a plane under Alain’s supervision. It is regularly seen flying over Albi.
