Created in 1987 from the Aeronautics Training Centre, the WAN was born in 1999 from the common desire of Walloon industrialists and political authorities to have an efficient training organisation. Its essential mission is to network all the resources of the aeronautics world.
To carry out its mission, the WAN relies on various partners, including various competence centres, aeronautical schools, airlines (Brussels Airlines, TUI, Thomas Cook, ...), Defence (AIR Component), and the players in the Walloon aeronautics industry grouped within the EWA (Walloon Aeronautics Companies, SONACA, SABCA, SAFRAN AERO BOOSTER, etc.) and members of SKYWIN (Competitiveness Cluster for the aeronautics and space sector). Proof of this interest on the part of the industry is the current Chairman of Sonaca, Pierre Sonveaux, who also chairs the WAN Board of Directors. Close collaboration is also maintained with the Haute-École Condorcet de Charleroi and the University of Liège.
