Avions de Tourisme en France 1945-1970 – French General Aviation 1945 - 1970
Jacques Guillem, Patrick Vinot Préfontaine, Jacques Chillon and Alain Gosset
Following the Second World War, French general and light aviation was in a parlous state. It was reliant upon captured German aircraft and some imports from the UK and America. Gradually, with Government support, many small manufacturers were established, producing a wide range of light aircraft. This transformation led to the 1960s being considered the golden age of French light aviation. Four specialists from Trait d’Union (the French Branch of Air-Britain) have produced a marvellous review of French light aviation in this glorious era. Based around a superb collection of nearly 290 previously unpublished photographs (many in colour), the authors cover some 120 different types of aircraft from around the world active in France during this period.
The book covers the F-B, F-D and F-O registers.
Produced to the standard that one would expect from Air-Britain’s French branch, this is a book that any enthusiast of the period cannot be without.
