Tatin, Victor
Frenchman, Victor Tatin (1843-1913)
He built a model in 1879 with a fuselage that acted as a tank for the compressed air that drove a small engine linked to two tractor propellers.
A series of experiments, tried by an able mechanician, which almost demonstrate that artificial flight is accessible to man, with motors that have been developed within two years. These experiments were carried on by M. V. Tatin, who was then Professor Marey's mechanical assistant.
