Lebaudy Frères was an airship company.

Chief engineer Henri Julliot created a series of airships resembling Santos-Dumont blimps but bigger.[1]

By 1909 the company had built four ships for the French military, one for the Russian, one for the Austrian, and was working on another for the British.[2] These included Le Patrie which made several successful flights in 1907 before its loss to high wind.
