Fly Pan Am is the eponymous debut album of Fly Pan Am.[3] It was released in October 1999 by Constellation Records.[3]

The album contains a re-recording of the song, "L'espace au sol est redessiné par d'immenses panneaux bleus", which was featured on a split single in 1998 with Godspeed You! Black Emperor.[3]

The record also features strange use of instruments and cadence, as well as electronic noises, provided by guest musician Alexandre St-Onge, that abruptly intersect the music.[3] Their second album, entitled Ceux qui inventent n'ont jamais vécu (?), employs the same electronic dissonance, but to a higher degree.
