Toulouse, epicenter of aerospace and technological innovation
Since the creation of the first motorized flying machine, credited to Clément Ader at the end of the 19th century, Toulouse has brilliantly taken the lead in aviation, becoming an international leader in aeronautical activities. Toulouse has long been one ofEurope's leading centers of aeronautical activity. The city is home to the headquarters of Airbus, Europe's leading manufacturer of commercial aircraft, as well as many other renowned aerospace companies like Thales or AirFrance. This concentration of aeronautical knowledge, resources and talent is a major asset for any company wishing to innovate in this sector.
Toulouse has long been one of Europe's leading aerospace hubs.
Toulouse boasts a cutting-edge aeronauticsand aerospace research and development infrastructure. Aerospace Valley alsocontinues to grow, thanks to its proximity to the University of Toulouse,renowned for its training in these fields, and the large number of engineeringschools of European renown, such as ISAE-SUPAERO, ENAC or IPSA Toulouse.
The capital of aeronautics and space is also home to research and innovation centers such as the Centre National d'Études Spatiales (CNES), Zephalto's main partner, and the Office National d'Études et des Recherches Aérospatiales (ONERA), which are major players in cutting-edge technology research. The city of Toulouse boasts a high-performance communications network, ensuring fast, fluid connections not only nationwide in France, but also internationally. Toulouse-Blagnac airport, just a few kilometers from the city center, serves over 80 international destinations and is a major hub for air travel in Europe.
So it's only natural that Zephalto, the first low-carbon travel company to reach the stratosphere, should set up in the south-east of Toulouse, in Escalquens, confirming its determination to follow in the footsteps of French technical know-how of excellence!
