DEPERDUSSIN - World War I Bomber, piloted by Guy Chereau at Montargis airfield (FR).

“The Deperdussin is a bomber from the First World War. It represents the beginning of aviation, with its aerodynamic features from the beginning of the last century, and is difficult to pilot. It’s rather extraordinary to be able to enjoy this type of airplane today and I myself have had the good fortune to fly it. Even if this one was entirely rebuilt, it scrupulously respects the original plans.”

REPUBLIC RC-3 SEABEE - 1947 amphibian seaplane above the Biscarrosse lake (FR) - Aquitaine Hydravions.

“This plane was bought in the US by the aeroclub and its President, Jean-Luc Langeard, who is the founding member of a school for piloting seaplanes based in Biscarrosse, It stands apart for its propulsive propeller and its egg-shaped cockpit, which gives it an original configuration and makes it easily recognizable. It was restored by an American and won several awards at the meeting in Oshkosh (US). It’s the only one based in France.”

Very efficiant plane, designed and produced entirely by Claude Chudzik.

“This is a truly extraordinary airplane. It’s owner/engineer, Claude Chudzik, invented and designed all the plans and created the plane himself. It’s made entirely of composites and flies very fast with velocity not to exceed 300 kt and an economic cruising speed of 175 kt. It took Claude 12 years to bring his project to fruition.”

SKYRAIDER displayed during the Reno airshow (USA).

“A fighter plane prepared for the Reno (US) airplane races in the unlimited category, which is open to the most powerful planes. I very much like its looks, with its checkerboard engine hood, which hides power that is calculated in the thousands of horsepower.”

Built by DASSAULT in the 40s, FLAMANT MD 312 of the Amicale Alençonnaise des Avions Anciens A3A - Pilot A. Odolant.

“Built by Dassault in the 1940s, this liaison and training military plane served in the Algerian war. Somewhat forgotten, only eight are currently flown in France. This one belongs to a collector who has three that are in flying condition.”

F2G CORSAIR prepared for Reno’s races (USA), category Unlimited.

“This Corsair, originally a US combat plane from 1945, was modified so that it could take part in airplane races in the unlimited category. The races are held at a height of thirty feet, or nine meters from the ground with eight planes at the same time flying a circuit that is limited by pylons. These planes are very fast, reaching speeds of 700 to 800 km/h."

Class 6 ULM Helicopter, equipped with a Rotax 914 motor - HELIVAL flying school in Melun (FR).

“A class of helicopter that has existed for 4 to 5 years in France and which is included in the ULM category. This particular feature offers an advantage in that you don’t need a helicopter license to fly it: a class 6 ULM license is enough. However, at nearly 180,000 euros, it is prohibitively expensive.”

SUPER CONSTELLATION of Flyers Association (CH) - First airplane with a pressurized cabin - King of the Atlantic in the 50s.

“I didn’t have the opportunity to shoot it myself but for me it’s the most beautiful commercial plane ever built, much more elegant than the recent models.”

WACO Type 10 TAPPERWING - 1928, 300 HP Jacob motor - Piloted by Pierre Duval.

“I think that this three-seater biplane, which dates from 1928, is highly attractive. It’s always perfect for flying presentations. Pierre Duval regularly presents it at air shows.”

MORANE 733 - French military training plane, refurbished by Train Classique de Roanne Association - St. Yan flyin (FR).

“A French Army training place that was recovered by an association in the city of Roanne. Made entirely of polished aluminum, it is the most attractive 733 that I am aware of. There are very few left. Many have gone to the scrap metal heap.”

“This is an Italian business plane build in a typically Italian style. Dating from the 1970s and entirely made over with leather, it’s as magnificent on the inside as on the outside.”
