L'Aérophile was a leading aeronautics journal founded in 1893 by Georges Besançon. It began as the organ of the Union aérophile de France and became the official journal of the Aero Club of France.

In 1898, Wilfrid de Fonvielle was co-director with Besançon; Emmanuel Aimé was editor-in-chief. The publisher was given as Bureaux de l'Aérophile, 14, Rue des Grandes-Carrières ,14.[1]
