Our Mission Strengthen the bond between the ISAE alumni in the USA and the ISAE students

Friends of ISAE Inc was created in December 2010 to support the activities of the Institut Supérieur de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace (ISAE), a French institution dedicated to higher education and research in the field of aerospace.

ISAE trains engineers that are highly qualified in the aerospace sectors and related fields, and conducts scientific research and technological development work. Friends of ISAE will raise funds and sponsor educational and research programs in these areas.
Such programs may include the funding of:
- Capital, research or pedagogical projects
- Recruitment of students, faculty and researchers
- Scholarships

Friends of ISAE was incorporated in Delaware in December 2010. In May 2011, the IRS determined that Friends of ISAE was exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Acknowledgement: Nothing would have been possible without the tireless efforts and professionalism of a group of dedicated alumni and friends of ISAE. We would like to thank: Alexandra Lauvaux, daughter of Jerome Lauvaux (SupAero 77) and Jean-Xavier Barthelemy for helping us to set up the structure. We would like to thank as well David Gmach (SupAero 62) for his creativity and for designing and setting up this web site.
