College students from Illinois and Wisconsin completed six-week internships at EADS Socata’s headquarters in France as part of an ongoing cooperation with EAA’s Young Eagles program.

The two students, Margaret Viola and Matthew Woodruff, were scheduled to outline their EADS Socata work experience at the Gathering of Eagles Dinner Thursday night.

Viola, an EAA volunteer for six years, is majoring in physics and Chinese at the University of Chicago. She created a strategic business case for the company’s general aviation sector during her internship.

Woodruff, who is involved in EAA’s Fond du Lac chapter, graduated from the Milwaukee School of Engineering and has worked as a research assistant at the NASA Langley Flight Research Center. He researched noise regulations for EADS Socata’s next generation of aircraft for his internship.

"We were highly impressed by our 2008 Young Eagles interns," said Nicolas Chabbert, president of EADS Socata North America. "They brought a high level of enthusiasm, skills, energy, and a U.S. viewpoint to our company’s projects, and accomplished a significant amount of work in a limited period of time."

EADS Socata will continue the Young Eagles project in 2009.
