Méribel Aviation and Astronautics Festival

Raise your eyes to the skies and you will have the chance to admire some of the most impressive aerial diplays and to discover flying machines of all kinds.

Included in the festival programme are: a fly-by of the Patrouille de France (the French aerobatic display team), aerobatic displays, tourist flights and a chance to meet the professionals of the aeronautic world.

Created in 1980, Méribel’s Festival is returning this summer, to the delight of aviation and aeronautical enthusiasts. For more than 10 years, it has welcomed some of the world's most famous astronauts and military pilots - European, French, American and Russian – and delighted thousands of holidaymakers. This year, it celebrates some of the events of 1969 that made aerospace history: the launch of the Boeing 747, Concorde’s first flight, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s Apollo 11 mission, and Peter Conrad and Alan Bean’s Apollo 12 mission.
