Abrial, George

Georges Abrial was born in 1898; in the year 1909 he started to build scale model gliders and eventually built more than 250. After graduating from the St Cyr Aeronautical Institute he became an aerodynamicist for the Levasseur firm.

Abrial stopped designing new aircraft after 1932, being more attracted by instructorship and educational methods and played an important role in the development of soaring in France during the thirties. After the war he was still very active in promoting soaring not only in France, but also in French Africa.
