Hi,

I edit the WEL-40, it was a colonial light transport aircraft Project for 1930 contender,and here is the proof.

For WEL-70, I remember the source for it was RN.3,or a three seat night recce aircraft Project,from AFM magazine.

Thanks hesham. As noted before, the correct company name was: Société des Avions Weymann-Lepère - not 'Leper'. Some sources give the name as Weymann-LePère (Societé des Avions).

Minor biographical notes:

Charles Terres Weymann was indeed born in Port-au-Prince but since his father was an American, he too became a US citizen. After testing aircraft for Nieuport during WWI, he became best known for automotive coachwork - Société de Carrosserie Weymann (Paris); Weymann Motor Body Co. (London), and later Weymann American Body Co. (Indianapolis).

Capt. Georges LePère was a French aeronautical engineer with a previous American connection. While attached to the French Aeronautical Mission to the US, Capt. LePère was approached to design what became the Packard-Le Père LUSAC-11.

LePère later became the chief designer for Aviméta (Société pour la Construction d'Avions Métallique) - part of Schneider et Cie. There, in 1927-29 he designed such all-metal aircraft as the Aviméta A.V.M. 88 2-seat fighter, A.V.M. 92 cabin monoplane, and A.V.M. 132 trimotor.
