A culture dedicated to services and training with flight instruments
The FARMAN brothers have left behind an undisputed legacy in the culture of aviation. They were unparalleled entrepreneurs, pioneers in their industrial approach to aviation and also in the teachings in blind pilotage enabling us to fly more all the while greatly improving flight safety. Many prominent French and American pilots have been trained using the FARMAN method.
The FARMAN brothers, aviators and aircraft manufacturers, who created the premises of the airport, built this hangar. Henri Farman created in Toussus in 1911 the first flight school offering blind pilotage.
After an increase in their personal fortunes thanks to the increase in aircraft orders in the wake of the first World War, the brothers also developed one of the first airline companies open to passengers in 1919. As to Maurice Farman, the family engineer/manufacturer, he designed exceptional planes establishing many new records. It was on board of a Farman that Eugène Renaux landed on the Puy de Dôme in 1910.
