It was tomorrow! From ŒHMICHEN to AVIONS MAUBOUSSIN
North Franche-Comté, a land of inventors and know-how
ADNFC (North Franche-Comté Economic Development Agency) begins its historical saga of summer in the air with Étienne Oehmichen through the approval, in Valentigney, of the first helicopter flight in 1924. His spirit lives on today at Avions Mauboussin and its hybrid-hydrogen propulsion.
