For millennia, humanity gazed upwards and dreamt of taking to the skies and exploring the stars. But this remained simply a vision until the innovative spirit of the early aviators overcame all limits. Airbus, through its predecessor companies, has been at the heart of this quest, pioneering many of the technologies that helped us reach the skies and stars and are now part of everyday life. Developing aircraft that fly faster, further and more efficiently; exploring the distant reaches of space; and protecting our security here on earth. Discover Airbus’ place in the history of aerospace and defence and celebrate the outstanding female pioneers who helped shape the world of aviation.
