Roland Potez, who has presided over the destiny of POTEZ AÉRONAUTIQUE since 1979, wanted to ensure the continuity of the more than one hundred year old group created by the prestigious aircraft manufacturer Henry Potez, his grandfather, by passing the company on to his children, Antoine and Henry.

“I am happy to pass on to my sons Henry and Antoine the company created more than one hundred and ten years ago by my grandfather Henry Potez, the famous aircraft manufacturer behind the creation of the French aeronautical industry. His vision has allowed to built our industry, our capabilities, as well as the know-how and skills of the tool that I am passing on. I wish the company a radiant future serving its customers and thus the aviation industry. Confident in its ability to prosper in the context of the recovery, I am certain that Potez Aéronautique will continue to inspire many generations,” said Roland Potez at the end of the General Assembly on November 15, 2021, during which the transmission was approved.
