Modern Aviation

Amidst some 500 fascinating exhibits, including 10 planes and six helicopters, find out how and why aircraft can fly so safely – and how technology has evolved since the 1950s.

  • Adults, Family and children, Young people

Large civil aircraft developed after 1945 look very similar - even if there are 50 years of technical development between them. But new engines, materials and control technologies have long since ensured greater efficiency and safety. This progress runs through all branches of aviation, from the drone or ultralight aircraft to helicopters, fighter planes and the Airbus A380. Learn more about these topics in the guided tour through the Modern Aviation exhibition at the Deutsches Museum.
