Aviation Pioneer. Born in Thiérache, France, after serving as an operator in the French 24th Artillery during World War I, he earned a pilot's license from the Newport Miramas Aviation School in January 1918. He flew for a air courier company and a French airline specializing in the organization of air shows. Together with other pilots, he set speed records and endurance records for distance flight in the 1920s and 30s. In December 1928, he set the world's record for distance flown in the European circuits and flew the first flight from Paris to Hanoi in January 1932. In May 1934, with co-pilot Maurice Rossi, he crossed the Atlantic from Paris to New York in a record 38 hours and 27 minutes.
