Dassault Aviation celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2016.

This centennial celebration was an opportunity to show the company’s human, technical and industrial experience and capabilities, plus its unique role in the French economy and its resolutely global stance.

The production of the first aircraft part designed by its founder, Marcel Dassault, the Éclair propeller, was used on French airplanes during the first major aerial combat in history, in the skies over Verdun in 1916.

See in pictures a compilation of photos illustrating the 100th anniversary of the Company.
