Michel LEDET
Editorial director

My job essentially revolves around the coordination of the work of our staff writers. I'm an aviation and naval history "nut" and devote much time and attention to overseeing and nurturing the birth, growing pains and development of everyone of our publications ! I'm constantly researching new subjects that may well become book projects or feature articles...

Christophe CONY
Chief staff writer - AVIONS magazine

Although I trained as a historian, I've been an aviation enthusiast longer than I can remember. In every issue of Avions magazine I strive to mix up a cocktail of the best in avaition writing & images - old & modern, French & foreign, eyewitness accounts, in-depth bios of the aces, aircraft type files, historical features...not only is there something for every aircraft enthusiast in each issue but much that is liable to stimulate other areas of your interest...

Frédéric STAHL
Chief staff writer - Navires & Histoire magazine

My passion for ships, history, faraway places and a burning desire to get to the bottom of any story naturally led to a career in journalism. Writing about the great vessels of the high seas and the worlds navies and their history is the background that enabled us to create the magnificent magazine that is « Navires et Histoire ».

Jean Marie GALL
Chief staff writer, illustrator and lay-out ...

Tombé tout petit déjà dans l'Aéro et le nautique, passionné d'Histoire, j'oscille entre l'abus de dictionnaires en tous genres pour la standardisation des textes de nos chers auteurs, le pilotage d'un clavier pour l'iconographie, la mise en pages des collections de livres, et la recherche pour mes propres ouvrages.

Jean-Baptiste Delcambre
Graphic artist, illustrator and lay-out ...

I have always been enthusiastic and attracted by graphic arts, computerised edition and the magic art of putting text and images together. My job in Lela Presse is then to make you enjoy reading your magazines and then find the most pragmatic solution to this kind of equation : 86 pages of text + 168 photos + 5 line drawings + 12 colour profiles + 4 tables = 100 pages magazine !...

The following contributors from around the world – authors of renown, archivists, historians, photo collectors - all play a role in ensuring the high quality of our magazines and publications and we salute them here :
