Auguste Vicherat was a French aero inventor, filing in 1912 from département Yonne, France.[1]

He, or at least someone of the surname, was earlier associated with the location "chez le sieur Petel, rue Saint-Vincent de Paul, 17, Paris".[2] A non-aero British patent filed in 1900 has an Auguste Vicherat filing from Rue Reaumur, 33, Paris, with the occupation Inventor, and filing with another Inventor who is using the same address.[3] It is conceivable that Auguste Vicherat is the Vicherat filing in 1894, and that he may not have actually lived in Paris. Still, the separation in years between the two aero-patents is odd, and the contents are wide-ranging. It may be that another Vicherat was active in the 1890s.
