  • Discover the adventure of French airmail service.

    At a time when no plane could do yet it, they wanted to cross a desert, an ocean, and the second highest mountain chain in the world to deliver the mail more quickly…
    To this end, “The Line” had to be opened by taking on considerable human and technical challenges.
    A crazy challenge that gathered around Mermoz, Guillaumet, Saint-Exupery …. Hundreds of men and women in an incredible adventure!
    One hundred years after the first flight, rediscover the amazing adventure of the Aéropostale in its historic buildings!
    It’s there, on the site of the Envol des Pionniers, that started the great love story between Toulouse and the planes!

    Here at Toulouse Montaudran, more than 20 prototypes and models of aircraft capable of meeting each successive challenge have been designed and assembled. Some of them took off from the historic plane field, on the 1.8km long runway and listed as a Historical Monument.

    The first plane ever built in Toulouse, a Salmson 2A2, was built and took off from here. Many others followed to meet the challenges of La Ligne: BREUGET 14 , LATE 24 , LATE 25, LATE 26, LATE 28, POTEZ 25, LATE 300…

    Up to 80 pilots, 250 mechanics, 53 radios, 250 sailors and nearly 900 administrative staff federated around the foolish project of Aéropostale. A huge project: the very first aeronautical company in Toulouse. Since then, Toulouse has never stopped designing and building planes.
