Safran Helicopter Engines - 80th anniversary

During 2018 Safran Helicopter Engines celebrates its 80th anniversary. Founded in 1938 by Polish engineer Joseph Szydlowski, the original Turbomeca company opened for business in Boulogne-Billancourt, near Paris, and in October that year its first aeronautical component, the S39 centrifugal compressor for a Hispano-Suiza engine, took off aboard a Dewotine D520.

We are all very proud of this 80-year legacy of aero-engine innovation, and will celebrate it next September with the entire Safran Helicopter Engines community.
