Preserving aeronautical heritage

Founded in March 1988, and in partnership with the French Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace, Memorial Flight's work is mainly focused on an interesting period of our history in the field of technology and mankind : the First World War.

The association is a non-profit organization and is also ruled by a Ministry of Defence agreement signed in october 1989.

Aeroplanes are either restored or built in a Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace owned workshop and great care is taken to ensure that original techniques, materials and engines are used.


Only by working to this standard will the public get the right understanding and impressions of the evolution of aviation in the early years. In order to achieve this, it is essential to get the maximum amount of information, such as drawings, technical data, spare parts or information from museums across the world, from private collectors and researchers.

We have had a cooperation agreement with the Berlin Museum since May 1994 and are member of the British Preservation Council.


Our aeroplanes are all registered in France and can be seen either on the ground, or occasionnaly flying, in the Musée Volant Salis located on Cerny - La Ferté-Alais airfield, south of Paris. Some aircrafts restored or built by Memorial Flight over the years, are now part of other collections across the world, after being part of our aiworthy fleet for some years.
