Guided tours… in costume On the occasion of Museum Night, Safran museum guides invite you to discover these materials in an original way, in the form of tours led by historical figures in period costume. Louis Seguin, who created in 1905 the engine company Gnome, ancestor of Safran, will thus retrace the beginnings of the Group, and in particular the success of the famous Omega radial engine. Paul-Louis Weiller, hero of the First World War, will tell how he straightened out the Gnome & Rhône company in the interwar period. Record enthusiasts will not be left out: the aviator Louis Blériot, the first pilot to cross the Channel by plane in 1909, but also Roland Garros (the one at the stadium!), who crossed the Mediterranean in 1913, or even Adrienne Bolland, aviator without fear who crosses the Andes Cordillera in 1921, will evoke their exploits and the materials – exhibited in the museum – thanks to which they have accomplished. Closer to us, André Turcat, nicknamed "Monsieur Concorde", Yuri Gagarin, the famous Russian cosmonaut, and the American Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the Moon, will introduce visitors to some of the most major technological advances that have marked aerospace history. Finally, for the curious, motorcycle racer Alain Dagan will explain how Safran has been manufacturing motorcycles for several decades. And thats not all ! A drone piloting workshop will allow you to learn the basics of piloting in a fun and safe way. Budding pilots, big or small, can also sit at the controls of a Mirage or an Alouette helicopter before trying out civil and military aircraft flight simulators. You will also have the possibility of operating the virtual test bench of the M88, the engine of the Rafale . Finally, all the collections will remain accessible all night.
