Toulouse Pioneers

A collective of corporate ambassadors for L'Envol des Pionniers in Toulouse, cradle of the aeronautics industry and European space capital.

The “Toulouse Pioneers” collective displays innovation as a state of mind and brings together the pioneers of the eco-mobility of today.

Bringing together various innovative companies, this collective aims to promote L’Envol des Pionniers and to perpetuate this pioneering spirit dedicated to connecting people, as the pioneers of yesteryear did; by designing the future of aviation and mobility.

The spirit of innovation, audacity, entrepreneurship, inspiration for future generations, will be present in this collective. The first five partner companies to have joined this collective were presented on November 28, 2022 to testify to their vision of the pioneering spirit and their commitment to the values of the forerunners in L’Aéropostale and the inspiration that they provide today.

This collective will take part in L’Envol des Pionniers’ cultural programme and thus display to the general public, as well as to schoolchildren, their vision as pioneers of today’s aviation and the challenges to be met.
