Morane-Saulnier Airplanes
Travel To France For An Air Show?
Photos To Temp You

Morane-Saulnier is a French aircraft manufacturing company. You don't hear much about them in the U.S. That's what we love about attending air shows around the world.

These aviation pioneers were active from the early days of aviation. Aéroplanes Morane-Saulnier was formed in 1911 when aircraft developers Raymond Saulnier and the Morane brothers joined forces.

La Ferte Alais Air Show features several great example of these beautiful French antique airplanes. They even a couple of examples of early ones with only the Morane designation. We had enough fun seeing them at the air show that we thought you'd want to see them all.

Many of these early planes had parasol-wings. They were primarily reconnaissance, fighter and trainer aircraft.

While most were designed to meet French Air Ministry requirements, many became popular sport aviation planes and were later produced for the civil market.
