Each year the French Air and Space Force Academy organizes and participates in bilateral (with British, Moroccan, and Polish cadets) and trilateral (with Spanish and Italian cadets) sports competitions. During these events, the best French athletes test themselves against their foreign counterparts in a variety of sports including rugby, cross-country running, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and biathlon. For 2 days, large delegations of foreign cadets, accompanied by the Commandants of their academies, come to stay in Salon-de-Provence. In addition to the challenge and spirit of competition, these events are a chance for cadets to meet and learn more about one another.
