Toute l'actualité du petit prince

A Saint-Exupéry week in Toulouse (France)

From June 10 to 17, the Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile (ENAC) in Toulouse pays tribute to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

On this occasion, ENAC proposes to rediscover his work from a new angle. The man, the pilot and the writer will of course be highlighted, but also a less known facet of his prolific career: the passionate inventor, eager to imagine the future aviation.

For the first time in France, patents filed by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry will be exposed to the public. The inventiveness of these inventions will match the taste of innovation underlying civil aviation and its new challenges.
