Founded November 1997
The Bugatti Aircraft Association is the association of enthusiasts of the Bugatti airplane. However, also the other aircraft constructions of both Ettore Bugatti as well as Louis de Monge have our attention. The Belgian de Monge was the chief-designer of the airplane, in service of Bugatti.
The BAA continues to grow slowly, with currently over 75 members from all over the world (USA, UK, France, Italy, Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands and more)
Eighteen issues of the club magazine Pegasus have been released, containing various articles about the plane, and the ongoing research into its history. Especially the last few issues revealed a lot of new knowledge about the Bugatti Airplane, but also about other constructions, like the Bugatti Type 67, a Bugatti design for a V16, from 1939 and the Breguet-Dorand helicpoter, which used a Breguet-Bugatti 8 cylinder engine.
These articles will NOT be published on the Internet, as we are convinced that it will not be possible to really start a club in the anonimity of the Internet. Thatīs the reason why the BAA is "entirely" an off-line club of Bugatti lovers.
