The first phase, commonly called "École de l’Aviation Embarquée" (Carrier-borne Aviation School), will qualify rookie French naval aviation pilots for day and night carrier operations. For some of those young pilots this will be their first landing on the deck of Charles de Gaulle CVN.

The second phase will consist in training newly qualified pilots as well as veteran pilots in the conduct of operational missions from the aircraft carrier.
