Entreprise européenne par excellence, Airbus a su démontrer que l’union fait la force. Dans cet ouvrage très documenté et abondamment illustré, Pierre Sparaco, auteur reconnu, retrace minutieusement les étapes riches en rebondissements de l’essor d’Airbus, des premiers projets à l’imposant A380.

In the space of thirty-five years, Airbus has developed a complete family of commercial aircraft, with capacity ranging from 100 to 550 seats, and has succeeded in capturing half of the world market, to reach parity with Boeing.
France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Spain share the credit for this technical, commercial and industrial success. As a European enterprise par excellence, Airbus has proven the truth of “strength in numbers.” In this well-documented and abundantly illustrated volume retracing the development of civil aeronautics since World War II, recognized aviation author Pierre Sparaco explores each phase in detail, revealing the near misses and dead-ends, the ins and outs of cutthroat rivalries, transatlantic clashes, daring strategies, alliances and misalliances, but above all, the determined focus that led to the rise of Airbus, from the first struggling projects, to the imposing A380.
Pierre Sparaco is a journalist and member of the Académie Nationale de l’Air et de l’Espace. He has followed the development of Airbus on a day-to-day basis from the 1960s to the flight of the A380 for Aviation Magazine. He joined Aviation Week & Space Technology in 1992, and retired as European Bureau Chief in April 2005. He continues to contribute to the magazine as a columnist.
