Jérôme Trécu

Graduate 2004

Good morning all.

My name is Jérôme TRÉCU, another Frenchman and more precisely: a Breton.
Passionate about aviation for as long as I can remember, it was after a stint at the Paris Fire Brigade and Air Firefighter that my career choice naturally turned towards helicopter and more particularly on the Canadian side.

It was in 2004 that I had the chance to start my professional pilot training at Passport Hélico, then located in Beloeil. Once my license in my pocket, I returned to France to convert my license and be able to fly in my country. Once the theoretical certificates validated as a free candidate (under the old version of the CPL) and 15 hours of Alouette 2 on the notebook, I am ready for the job search in France which, luckily, was done relatively quickly in the agricultural sector as a qualified follower on Bell 47, which allows for set-ups and a few other flights on demand. I then consider myself lucky and wish it would last!

I worked there for two seasons then Passport Hélico asked me at the beginning of 2008 to join this beautiful family again as ground and then flight instructor with a part of commercial flights as beautiful as they were varied. I had the chance to share three wonderful years in the Passport family and to work with great colleagues and students, both private and professional (with whom I am still in contact in France).
At the beginning of 2011, once qualified AS 350 Écureuil (ASTAR), I left Passport for an African adventure (Democratic Republic of Congo) for a great experience in the bush, being able to count only on myself once in flight far from any organism flight safety and control.
Then at the start of 2012, I suddenly fell ill and returned to France for rapid treatment, at the same time losing my class 1 medical … Difficult test but, luckily, things did not stop there. Time often doing things well and the wonderful world of the helicopter being small and full of good people, I had the chance to join the French school of Héli Union Training Center in Angoulême where I learned the theoretical modules from CPL to ATPL / IR, which I teach now.

Looking at my aeronautical journey of which I am proud, I always keep in mind that the base and therefore the main thing, it is with the Passport Hélico team that I learned it!

Enjoy the flights everyone !!
