The history of the collection is the result of a meeting between Charlie de la Royère and Patricia Henrion on September 11, 2001.
Charlie is an expert in the field of aviation and Patricia publishes beautiful books for Palaces in Europe and the Middle East.
A few years passed and Charlie joined the Royal Museum of the Army and Military History where he became responsible for the documentation and archive centre. In the evenings after his hours, he prepares a draft catalogue presenting one of the most beautiful collections of aircraft in the world and asks Patricia to take care of it.
This will be the beginning, the beginning of a beginning for Patricia and the things in the air.
The first edition of the museum's catalogue will be published in 2016. It is a great success! The specialist press speaks about it, the reviews are laudatory

"Richly illustrated and documented (...) A mine of information (...) " TOWARDS THE FUTURE | Jean-Luc Henrad |16/08/2016.
"Thisbook takes you through the collection and makes me want to visit the museum allthe more !"

The adventure begins, and the idea of a collection dedicated to aviation is confirmed, almost naturally.
The works will present exclusively unpublished documents and, as far as possible, in their original forms (handwritten letters, notebooks, etc.) with texts and captions written by specialists recognised by their peers. The importance of the image in relation to the text will be great ...As for the form, from the graphic design to the choice of paper, the type of binding, the format, everything is studied.
Charlie takes the lead.
A first title dedicated to Edmond Thieffry is published thanks to the passionate collaboration of Jean-Louis, grandson of the hero, who makes all his grandfather's correspondence and archives exclusively available to the publishing house.
Since then, other titles have been published and a dozen or so are being prepared for 2021.
Parents or relatives of Belgian heroes, aviators, inventors and builders, if you have a subject to suggest, please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail info@editionspatH.be or by telephone 0498 05 19 80.
We look forward to hearing from you,

Did you know this?

Sir George Cayley (1773-1857) was first to design an aerofoil and one of his flying machines made the world’s first manned heavier-than-air flight at Brompton Dale, near Scarborough, in 1849. This was more than 54 years before the Wright brothers made the first powered flight from Kitty Hawk Sands in the USA on 17 December 1903. Another machine, which Cayley called a ‘governable parachute’, was flown in 1853 at Brompton Dale, carrying Sir George’s coachman, who on coming back to earth said, “I wish to give notice, I was hired to drive not to fly”.
