Centenary of Naval Aviation: Aviaxess is the official partner
French Naval Aviation marked its centenary in 2010 and a major aviation meeting took place at the Toulon HyÃ¨res base on 13 June. Aviaxess, also based in Toulon, was a major sponsor of this event, providing transport for VIPs and offering air tours throughout the day, proving once again its commitment to French aviation heritage. Aviaxess is also a sponsor of the 50th anniversary of business aviation at Le Bourget airport this year. The company helped to organise an evening show last April as well as taking part in the filming of a documentary.
