Sloan & Cie, Ingénieurs-Constructeurs of 17 rue de Louvre, Paris, was a maker of hydraulic turbines and was established prior to 1900.

Built several models of tractor biplanes, 1910-1912, nicknamed "Bicurve" because of the slightly arched upper wing that attached at each end to the lower wing; also built conventional military 3-seater biplane, 1911, and made propellers.

SD attributes the Bicurve to Sloan & Cie

Further research Brockett's 1921 Bibliography of Aeronautics is possible. The history of Port Aviation sy (says?) the airfield where a Bicurve Sloan, manufactured by Sloan and Cie, was flown over several days in December 1910.
