Created in 1948 by Jean-Michel Charlier and Victor Hubinon, Buck Danny is to the comic book world what Top Gun is to cinema... a cult icon. The breathtaking adventures and finely-drawn realistic illustrations became a reference for all aviation enthusiasts. On the 70th anniversary of its creation, dive back into the comic books of Buck Danny, Sonny Tuckson and Jerry Tumbler, published by Belgian publisher Dupuis. This daredevil trio of pilots have travelled through history and borne witness to the evolution of aeronautics. Seventy years after his first flight, Buck Danny s blond locks haven t aged a day. Something for the Christmas stocking!

HOP! OFF ON ANOTHER TOUR!
Hop! Once again, the young pilots tour has raised light aviation to new heights! In the July 2018 edition, forty or so novice pilots were able to perform tests on the ground and in the air on a seven-stage route from Chartres to Aurillac (Eure-et-Loire and Cantal, France). The event aroused interest beyond our borders, we even hosted two foreign pilots for the first time this year! reveals Nicolas Gravez, Head of Communication and Innovation for the Fédération Française d Aéronautique, France s national aeronautics federation. Sporting aviation caps with the TOTAL logo, partner of the competition, these fledgling pilots also had the opportunity to visit three military bases for the very first time. In addition to the 1,000 litres of fuel awarded to each of the four winners, Total once again handled all refuelling. This year, the stops along the route were quite far apart. We therefore set up a specific logistics solution with two refueller lorries and dedicated personnel at each stage. An unprecedented operation which mobilised all of AIR TOTAL s expertise! explains Frank L Epine, General Aviation Sales Manager. All along the route, the young pilots were able to further their aeronautical knowledge and become ambassadors for light aviation among the general public. The future is assured!
