Graduation ceremony for the Middle east young cadets at the Cognac French Air Force.
In partnership with Aix-Marseille University and the French Air Force Academy in Salon de Provence, DCI offers training at its International Centre for Academic and Aeronautical Training (CIFAA) in Salon de Provence. The training, which is intended for foreign trainees, is identical to that of the French Air Force. The first phase, lasting up to two years, includes a French foundation course, booster courses in scientific subjects and one year of preparatory studies for university at the Air Force Academy. Foreign trainees then join French student officers for two years of training at the Air Force Academy. Graduates obtain a Bachelor degree.
