Review a century of exploits and discoveries. Dive into the heart of a remarkable adventure based on courage, talent and personal success, but one also plagued by failures and disappointments. A full-screen video documentary explores this fabulous epic, from the first flights of aviation's pioneers to tomorrow's superplanes. You will meet the larger-than-life personalities who created a modern legend, pilots, aircraft builders, and inventors: Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergh, Howard Hughes, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Donald Douglas, Andreï Tupolev, etc. Experience their adventures: crossing the English Channel and the Atlantic, the first round-the-world flight, breaking the sound barrier, etc.

More than 200 legendary airplanes. Admire the DC3, the Superconstellation, the Spitfire, the Mirage fighter jet, the Russian MiG 21, the Concorde, etc. You will learn all about their technical characteristics, their performance, and the technological advances achieved from one generation of aircraft to another. You will compare their vital statistics, cruising altitudes, and speeds. These flying machines will keep you fascinated for hours.

In interactive workshops, conduct your own experiments. The principles of flight, propulsion and piloting, as well as the principal features of an airplane.
