Discover the Melun-Villaroche airfield, a hot spot of French aeronautics, through the book The History of the Melun-Villaroche Aeronautics Center (Histoire du Centre aéronautique de Melun-Villaroche).
For many years, all of the prototype tests have taken place here, especially for companies like SNECMA and Dassault Aviation. Mystère, Mirage, the vertical take-off airplane Balzac, MD 450 Ouragan, and more… as many legendary airplanes which were able to take flight thanks to the help and vigilance of leading figures in aviation and specialized engineers.
Robert Lamouche, a former SNECMA employee, invites you to share in his major research project in this reference work, which provides a comprehensive overview of the development of French airplanes from 1936 to the present.
