Aircraft in Toulouse

Apprentice pilots or airplane buffs, Toulouse, the capital of aeronautics, is tailor-made for you!

Are you in search of an extraordinary adventure? Strap on your leather helmet and goggles and head to Envol des Pionniers (Flight of the Pioneers): relive the courageous exploits of the pilots of Aéropostale who set off from Toulouse to deliver the mail as far afield as South America.

Then head to Blagnac: at Les Ailes Anciennes, passionate volunteers will recount thousands of anecdotes relating to the Vampire, Alouette and Mirage aircraft, all of which have been lovingly restored by them and are now on display.

Next, take off to the Aeroscopia Museum. Welcome aboard a Concorde, put on your seatbelt and take control of a simulator, design and decorate your own aircraft, feel small as you stand in the cargo hold of a Super Guppy or A400M, step aboard the double-decker A380... This visit will give you wings.

Finally, a visit to the Airbus factory allows you to understand the organisation and manufacture of modern aircraft. Visit the facility: engineering, manufacturing, final assembly, testing...this world will no longer hold any secrets.

Satellites and rockets for a trip into Space

Do people say often tell you that your mind is in Outer Space? Do you have stars in your eyes? Then you simply must visit the Cité de l'Espace: take off on a rocket, step onto the Mir Space station, see a moon rock, present the weather forecast, and then enjoy a short trip to the I-Max cinema and the Planetarium. Now you're on cloud nine...
