ICARE magazine was created in 1957 by Captain Pierre Chanoine , then president of the National Union of Airline Pilots ( SNPL ) . Since then, traditionally , the Director of the magazine is still the president of the union.
Since its inception, the magazine has always been carried out by a team of pilots , active or retired , fully volunteers who devote much of their leisure time . Experts from the all walks occasionally collaborate
From 1965 , under the leadership of its editor , Commander Jean Lasserre , the journal specialized in the publication of issues devoted to the history of world aviation, largely through testimony and stories written by those who have contributed. But the magazine is also a means of expression and liaison between members of the SNPL .
