    Looking for Liaison Aircraft contacts in Europe

    Hello all. I've run www.Lbirds.com for a number of years and am currently completely rebuilding it on a new platform. I'm really looking to make contacts with Liaison aircraft restorers, maintainers, pilots, and historians in Europe. I'd love to talk to those of you over the pond and also be able to include and promote your efforts on the website.

      That's partly why I was reaching out. I hadn't seen much of anything about it and a friend mentioned it to me on the phone while we were talking about his Dad who flew as a liaison pilot during the Battle of the Bulge. It sure looks like the European L-bird owners are a bit more cohesive than over here and I'd like to find out more about what they do and where all they are located.
      One of my goals for the website is to make it easy for anyone interested in the aircraft and their stories to find a local place to visit.

          There is an Aeronca club, though their website appears out of date

            Great links guys. I appreciate the leads. Is there anyone on this board that's planning on attending the upcoming Liaison events in France? It's disappointing, but I doubt I'll be able to come myself and I'd love to get some sort of photos and debrief on what all goes on!

            This is the L-bird I work with at Commemorative Air Force HQ in Dallas, Texas now, a Taylorcraft L-2.
