From May 4 to September 23, 2018, the Mémorial Charles de Gaulle will be opening its doors for a new exhibition, “From Sky to Space” (“Du ciel à l’espace”). This exhibition focuses on General de Gaulle’s aerospace policy, designed to bring France into the modern era.

Explore more than a decade of change and innovation, through various media including photographs and videos. Discover the early stages in the launch of the Diamant A1 rocket in 1965, or the opening of Orly airport in 1961, and the launch of Concorde in 1969.  A whole host of new developments that allowed General de Gaulle to make France a leading nation.

Dassault Aviation is a partner of this exclusive exhibition, which puts the spotlight on the 1960s. This was a pivotal period for the company, with the birth of the Mystère-Falcon 20 business twinjet, the first airplane in the Mystère-Falcon family. Civil transport also improved with the short- and medium-haul twinjet: the 150-seat Dassault Mercure 100, via the program officially launched in April 1969.
