5 Toulouse is the fourth largest city in France after, Paris, Marseille and Lyon. Founded a few centuries B.C., it became later the capital of the Wisigoth Empire (4th-8th centuries AD) and a target of Attila's raid on western Europe.

In 1271, after a long and bloody war, the county became part of the Kingdom of France. In the 16th century, during the Blue Pastel Period, it experienced a new Golden Age because of trade. During the first world war, military and aeronautical industry settled there, far from the north-east front line. Then came the Aeropostale saga, between the two world wars, and finally Airbus and CNES (the French space agency) gave Toulouse a prominent position in European aerospace activities ( employees). N 1 in Europe of the aircraft and space, electronic, data-processing and microbiological industries. 2nd Pole of research in France with more than 400 laboratories and researchers

Many famous names are part of the region s contribution to aviation history. (Clément Ader, Emile Dewoitine, Pierre-Georges Latécoère, and Louis Bréguet, and the Aeropostale pioneers including Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Jean Mermoz).
