Description

Rougier was a famous cyclist and a champion race car driver. He learned to pilot a Voisin aircraft in 1909. In September, 1909, he won the Grand Prix de Berlin at the first aviation tournament held in Germany. In fact it was a disappointment to the Germans that the French won all the prizes at this meet. The meet was held in response to tremendous public enthusiasm for Orville Wright's demonstration flights at Templehof and Potsdam in August.
