Jump to: navigation, search

Béarn was at the time of early aviation a small frontier province in the south of France, whose capital was Pau. It is now within the department of Basses-Pyrenees). The club published statutes, regulations, and list of members in 1908. It appears to be separate from the Aéro-Club de Sud-Ouest, Pau section.

In 1910 there were 215 members. Officers, 1910, included: president Paul Tissandier; vice presidents Speakmann and De Tuite; secretary Henri Sallenave; and treasurer Cougiet. Louis Blériot was a member. Earlier in 1910, G. Gass, Colombes, Baillat, and Pontoise appear to have been vice presidents and A. Marchand was secretary. The club affiliated with the AeCF in 1910 or earlier.
