THE Arsenal de I'Aronautique occupies a unique position in French aviation somewhat analagous to that held prior to and during the Four Years' War by the Royal Aircraft Factory at Farnborough.

Abstract

THE Arsenal de I'Aronautique occupies a unique position in French aviation somewhat analagous to that held prior to and during the Four Years' War by the Royal Aircraft Factory at Farnborough. Founded in 1936, it was intended to be a State factory under the direct control of the Ministre de I'Air for the study and evolution of prototypes and new equipment. It was established with the object of producing prototypes of airframes and enginecoupling equipment which could ultimately go into production in one of the Socits Nationales and it was also definitely considered as a competitor to these concerns. It is of interest here to point out that the four great French nationalized companies, Centre, Nord, SudEst and SudOuest, which were founded in 1936 from various private companies are not under the strict control of the Air Ministry. In point of fact, they exercise considerable freedom much as any other large concern the nationalizing consisting mainly of additional capital added by the State to counter the disastrous effects of the everfalling franc.
