A while back an AEHS member was looking for some information on a particular French aircraft engine. While trying to find some information I stumbled upon the site linked below. There is a "Moteurs" section with about 30 PDF documents. I do not read French so I do not know how good they are but they look pretty good, and you can't beat the price. Just thought I'd share (even though it took me a while to get around to posing this).

Many of the documents do not list an author but some have Gerard Hartmann. My thanks go to Mr. Hartmann and anyone else involved in making this information available to the world.

There are also a number of other documents that may be of interest, especially to those who can read French.

I DO read French and I can say... These texts are very bad and written by someone who knows neither engine aircraft technology, or even its vocabulary ... The history of French aero engine still remains to be written!

Thank you very much for the feedback even though it is disappointing to know the texts are poor.

First, thanks to Bill Pearce for taking the time to inform us of the existence of the Hartmann articles.

Clearly Mr Hartmann's primary interest is in float planes and their history and it is to his credit that he has extended the scope of his articles to include French aero-engines.

I have downloaded two of the engine stories; the first is the one concerning the history of the Salmson Company. I have only very limited knowledge of the French language but was able to pick my way through the material and learn a few things of interest.

The second article I have printed out is the Rossignol article on the canon versions of the Hispano-Suiza. This is a very thorough study of the subject and the article is very well presented. My problem is that, in this case, I can't understand the text! The explanations are, understandably, quite complex. Very frustrating!

If anyone ever translates or comes across a translation of one or both of these articles, please let me know. I'd really like to read them.

Wouldn't it be nice if we all spoke the same language!!!!!

I do read french too but have to say I disagree. This website is a reputable one amongst the french aero amateurs and the available info, maybe not the most detailed or accurate one, is known to be reliable.
