This lecture will be given in French

By Georges Ville, former deputy director of the aircraft division of Aerospatiale, member and former president of the AAE.

On 29 May 1969, the signing of the “Agreement between the Government of the French Republic and the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany on the construction of the Airbus A300B” marks the departure of Airbus cooperation. After thirty years of operation, the resulting organisation has fulfilled its mission (and even beyond the initial expectations by taking the level of Boeing) by opening a serene future to European civil aviation construction; In the early 2000s, it was thus able to give way to a more conventional industrial structure, which was responsible for the latter reaping the benefits and confirming its position as a European world leader against Boeing.

At this conference, Georges Ville, actor of the epic Airbus since its infancy, presents the multiple episodes and twists of the negotiation as well as the adventures of its implementation.
