The FFA's mission (ever since its creation in 1929) is:

Other French sponsors:
Total: Multinational oil and gas company. According to its website, airtotal.com, the company supplies fuel to more than 250 international airport worldwide in 75 countries.
Dgac: Direction générale de l'aviation civile. This is the French civil aviation authority. To my understanding, this is France's version of the United States' FAA.
info-pilote: The official magazine of the FFA. It did a marvelous job documenting each stage of the Tour.
