Every year the "Fédération Française Aéronautique" organizes the "HOP! TOUR des jeunes pilotes". This unique event allows 45 young pilots from 18 to 24 years old, accompanied with 40 commissioners, to pass on their passion to both young and old of the "Secours Populaire Français" on the occasion of eight stages through France between July 19th and August 3rd.
In every stage, about 60 planes will be present and a Village of the Air opened to the public will be established with animations for your environment. You can also attend tests of navigation, handiness on the ground and in flight which will be organized between the young pilots. An Aviation meeting will take place on one of the stages.
