Born into a family of aviators, it is only natural that the young woman now wishes to become a professional airline pilot.

“There is a family tradition: when we come home from the maternity ward, we first take a maiden flight and then go home. I had my first flight just after I was born, and the passion was born when I was a baby,” she told BFMTV.

With her father, a pilot for celebrities like Johnny Hallyday and Claude François, she first flew at the age of 15. It is only natural that she continued her aviation studies in Strasbourg, a path she funded through odd jobs, as reported by L’Est Républicain.

As part of her studies to become a certified pilot, Julie-Anna piloted an A320 for the first time two weeks ago. An experience she will not soon forget. “It’s an aircraft that weighs 70 tons, while I weigh 50 kilograms,” she says.

“I find it even more impressive that from my small self, I have the ability to make that soar. That’s what I find impressive about commercial aviation, being able to fly such large and imposing machines,” she adds.

The next step for the young woman is to find a position as an airline pilot in an airline company. Currently, only 6% of women hold this position.
