Flying School

of the Lebanese Air Force


The Ecole de l’Air (Flying School) was first established in 1949 as a pilot training unit with Percival Proctor and Prentice aircraft. In 1950 these were supplemented by Chipmunk T.30s and fully replaced by the Harvard in 1952. A single Vampire T.55 allowed jet training to start in 1954. In 1975 the existing fleet was replaced by the Bulldog. The Bulldogs were retired in 2000, leaving no fixed-wing training aircraft.
