Mr. Georges Briffaud was a French,burned in 1917,and in 1934 he created a GB.1,it was very similar to Chanute biplane glider,after some modifications,this glider became GB.2,the GB.3 or GB.30 was also a glider,but never completed,the GB.4 was a single seat high-parasol-wing light monoplane of 1949,powered by 25 hp Ava engine,followed by GB.5 which developed from the later one,but had a 40 hp Mathis engine.

The GB.6 or GB.60 was a two-seat high-wing light tailless monoplane,with tricycle fixed landing gear,powered by one 40 hp Lutetia engine,the GB.7 was not known,and GB.8 or GB.80 was a single seat motor glider tailless monoplane,powered by one 18 hp Kroeber M4 engine,the GB.81 was a Project developed from it.

Also the GB.9 was not known,the GB.10 Pou Push was a single seat tailless monoplane,powered by one 30 hp Hirth 276R engine.

Those flying plank sailplanes look like they were based on Fauvels.
The Push Pou looks like it was based on Henri Mignet’s Pou d Ciel (Flying Flea).
