Our School


The ESMA Aviation Academy is currently the only multidisciplinary aeronautical school in Europe. Located in the south of France, in Montpellier (in the Hérault department), we prepare and inspires students who wish to embrace a career in the burgeoning global aviation industry.

The locals, the residents.

Located in the Montpellier Méditerranée Airport area, ESMA has more than 11,000m² of buildings, spread over several spaces.


Aeronautics brings together many trades all related to the operation of airports and airlines. The ESMA Aviation Academy thus prepares students for all careers in the aeronautical sector and creates excellence in graduates.
