Books and Magazine Articles about Jodel Aircraft

The only book about Jodels still in print: Xavier Masse: Avions Jodel

Another book with a large chapter about Jodels: Bernard Miette and Robert Roussel: Bernay - Ciel d'Histoire

An electronic version of a very interesting five-part article series about "The Jodel Story", written by Frank Rogers in 1996, the fiftiest anniversary of Jodel aircraft, is now available at Hans Teijgelers' webpages under the "General" menu item. This article gives a good overview on the history of Jodel aircraft and is quite detailed.

The following is a list of magazine articles from Frank Rogers posted to the Jodel Mailing List with additions by myself, with the information also mostly taken from individual mailing list postings.

I have added PDF-Versions of four articles originally uploaded to the e-groups files page by Stephen Mercer and Clarke Tate in TIFF-Format - the PDF-Files are somewhat smaller in size and perhaps more people know how to handle the freely available Adobe Acrobat Reader.
