Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database (impdb.org) has recently had a hard time keeping up with the growing demands of our users. In 2009 when a couple of us got together to begin putting the website together, space was never an issue. In fact, it has steadily grown with virtually no problems throughout the years.

In about the middle of 2016 we began to run into server space issues. We have since made upgrades (moving to a VPS, buying more space, etc), but the site continues to outgrow the upgrades. The meager ad revenue generated by the site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server. We who manage the site have never made money from it, it has only ever earned enough money to cover actual server costs.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we are asking for donations to keep this site up and running consistently like it did when it was a smaller, newer site. If you've enjoyed this website and would like to see it continue being the site you go to for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Oh yeah, new users and edits are now active (hopefully for good) while we're testing new and improved spam/bot protections :)
Thank you,
IMPDb Staff

---/---/---.

Aéropostale formally, Compagnie Générale Aéropostale was a founded in 1927 by the sale of Lignes aeriennes Latécoère nicknamed “La ligne” to a French businessman and Mayor of Etampes (France) named Marcel Bouilloux-Lafont. Continuing the routes previously operated by LAL from Toulouse to Barcelona , Casablanca, Dakar, where the mail was shipped by steamer to South America, in November 1927 regular flights between Rio de Janeiro and Natal were started. Expansion then continued to Paraguay, and in July 1929 a regularly scheduled route across the Andes Mountains to Santiago, Chile, were started, later extending down to Tierra del Fuego on the southern part of Chile. Finally, on May 12–13, 1930, the trip across the South Atlantic by air finally took place: a Latécoère 28 mail plane fitted with floats and a 650 horsepower (480 kW) Hispano-Suiza engine made the first nonstop flight. Aeropostale pilot Jean Mermoz flew 3,058 kilometres (1,900 mi) from Dakar to Natal in 19 hours, 35 minutes, with his plane holding 122 kilograms (269 lb) of mail. After a scandal involving postal payments from the French government to Aeropostale, the company was dissolved in 1932, and merged with a number of other aviation companies (Air Orient, Société Générale de Transport Aérien, Air Union, and Compagnie Internationale de Navigation) to create Air France.
After the WWII, aerial postal service was operated by Air France in a specific department of the national company named Centre d’Exploitation Postal Métropolitain , using Aérpostale brand on its fleet of airplanes composed of Junkers Ju 52/3m, Douglas DC-3, Douglas DC-4, Fokker F27 and Transall C-160.
In 1991, French postal service La Poste, Air France, Air Inter and private TAT create a new company branded as Aéropostale-Société d'Exploitation Aéropostale.
