At the occasion of the (telco) spring meetings of the three associations, it was regarded as a perfect opportunity to express the appreciation of IISL to Jean-Yves Le Gall, who has handed over the Presidency of IAF at the end of last year’s International Astronautical Congress. Jean-Yves Le Gall has been during his term as IAF President a particularly strong supporter of the cooperation between IAF, IAA and IISL. IISL President Kai-Uwe Schrogl acknowledged Jean-Yves Le Gall’s and the IAF Secretariat’s spirit and actions in the joint partnership. IISL looks forward to a continued close cooperation with Jean-Yves Le Gall in his new function as IAF Honorary Ambassador.
