Since 2015, Pierre-Laurent Borras has brought to IFSA his 25 year aeronautical experience. As an aeronautical enginieer, he started his career as mechanical engineer on Mirage 2000 in Cambrai.
Willing to develop his technical skills, he studied engineering at ENSTA in operational research, which enables him to understand the complexity of systems characterised by their non-determinism.
With this knowledge, he evolved in complex programme management within the ministry of Defence (M2000, RAFALE, missile and drone, conduct of change).
Keen on management, he has developed a management style based on a know-how-to-be favouring the confidence of teams in themselves and between them, with a distributive leadership according to projects.
Appointed head of technical services of the Creil Air Base, he did not hesitate to address the challenge of implementing State airworthiness ruling for CASA CN 235 and very rapidly gained FRA 145, 147 and M agreements.
Promoted deputy director of regulation at State aeronautical safety direction, he acquired a particular expertise with regards to State airworthiness and air safety. As chairman, under the aegis of the European Defence Agency, he has been organising the works leading to EMAR (European Military Airworthiness Requirements).
Pierre-Laurent Borras is now working for the Star Engineering company, specialised in aeronautics, defence and space in operational safety, integrated logistical support, quality insurance, certification and airworthiness.
