Albessard La Balancelle / Autostable
 
 Albess-Autos-01
 
First actual built design of Lucien-Joseph-Antonin Albessard; although not necessarily named “La Balancelle” at the time. Built in 1912, the Albessard La Balancelle experimental aircraft had tandem wings.
 
 Albess-Autos-02
 
Albessard tried to design a comfortable passenger aeroplane that would prevent stalling in alternating wind conditions, therefore he arranged the wings around an enclosed cabin to help keep the aircraft in the stream. Jules Vedrines tested the machine and noted that it was underpowered.
 
The design “Autostable” was efficient and research continued until 1926.
