Founder Robert Savary was an engineer. He designed a biplane using a system of deformation instead of warping of the planes, constructed at works of Leon Bolles, a motor car manufacturer, 1909. By 1914, had designed and built at least 12 biplanes, all different, including single- and double-propeller racers and military biplanes. By mid-1910 ran a flying school at Chartes that used his biplanes and by mid-1912 was running a military school at Chartres. In 1911, one of his military biplanes won the Legion d'Honneur. Appears to have retired in 1914 but in 1916 soon returned to manufacturing as co-founder of Les Ateliers d'Aviation R. Savrary et H. de la Fresnaye.

more is available in FM through 1914
