Flying laboratories for scientific research

SAFIRE is the French leading facility for airborne research based in Toulouse, France. We operate three state-of-art flying laboratories: a low-level Piper Aztec, a mid-tropospheric ATR 42 and a Falcon 20 jet. Our team at SAFIRE has unique expertise supporting environmental and climate science missions, satellite validation as well as R&D in aeronautics. Our public research facility is a research infrastructure of the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the French meteorological service (Météo-France) and the French space agency (CNES). The expertise of the SAFIRE staff provides technological excellence in airborne equipment for flight missions adapted for academic and industrial research.
