Reserve this day to discover places of memory and industrial know-how in Essonne, south of Paris, Île-de-France region.
Bordered by the Essonne river, the town of La Ferté Allais has a surprising museum that is sure to please everyone, young and old alike.
The guided tour of the Salis Flight Museum remains a real human adventure transmitted with passion. The extraordinary work accomplished by its founder Jean Baptiste SALIS to enhance and preserve the aeronautical heritage of the Cerny aerodrome today allows us to admire an impressive collection dedicated to ancient aviation.
Jean Baptiste Salis’s vocation began when Blériot crossed the Channel in 1909. He began an exceptional aeronautical career: an instructor during the war of 14, pilot for the Prime Minister of the Air, and the first pilot to fly over Mont-Blanc in 1953.
Three years later, at 59, he decided to make his childhood dream come true by crossing the English Channel with the Blériot XI, a single-seater plane made of ash wood that he himself rehabilitated.
In 1938, he acquired the Ardenay farm, where he transferred his aeronautical activities (mechanics, maintenance, purchase and sale of planes, construction, etc.). The land officially became La Ferté-Alais aerodrome in 1946.
Invaded by the same taste for freedom, his son Jean and grandson Edmond will not hesitate to take up the challenge. When their father died in 1967, Jean and his sister Irene set off in search of the planes that marked his career.
Associations and private collectors join the adventure to enlarge and complete the collection. Today, the Salis Flight Museum offers visitors the opportunity to discover the legendary aircraft in chronological order: from the pioneers of aviation to the beginnings of air travel, the Great War, sport and leisure aviation of the interwar period. …
You will be in awe of the Morane-Saulniers built between 1927 and 1943. These planes, listed as historical monuments, unique in the world, are in a state of flight like all the others elsewhere.
Admire the flamboyant Stinson, red and white, a reproduction of the one used by Al Capone, the Boeing B-17, the last of WWII, or the famous Blériot XI, offered by factory workers to Louis Blériot.
After this astonishing adventure in the clouds, you will continue your journey by discovering the Miellerie located in Boutigny-sur-Essonne, rich in local know-how.
