DURING the past few years, the French Air Ministry has been conducting a Concours des Avions de Chasse, the object of which is to encourage the French Industry to design and construct new single‐seater fighters which, if successful in tests, will be adapted to replace older and obsolete flying equipment. Prominent French constructors have entered machines, which at present are being tested by the Service Technique de l'Aéronautique at Villacoublay. Principal among them are types constructed by Morane‐Saulnier, Dewoitine, Les Mureaux, Nieuport‐Delage, Bernard, Hanriot, Loire, and Wibault.
