Société Anonyme pour Aviation et ses Dérivés (SPAD) was a French aircraft manufacturer between 1911 and 1921. Its SPAD S.XIII biplane was the most popular French fighter airplane in the World War I.

The company was set up in 1911 as the Société des Aéroplanes Deperdussin, becoming the Société Provisoire des Aéroplanes Deperdussin in 1912. Founder Armand Deperdussin (1867-1924) had been a travelling salesman and a cabaret singer in Ličge and Brussels, before making his fortune in the silk business. Deperdussin became fascinated by aviation in 1908, and in 1909 he established an aircraft works at Laon. Deperdussin himself was not a noted designer, but he hired the talented engineer Louis Béchereau (1880-1970) as technical director. Béchereau would be responsible for SPAD aircraft designs thereafter.

SPAD was one of the most important aircraft manufacturers during World War I, but until now the focus of published materials about it has been on its two most famous single-seat designs, the SPAD 7 and SPAD 13. This new book takes a look at SPAD’s less well known two-seat designs, including the SPAD SA series, the widely used SPAD 11 and SPAD 16, and the excellent SPAD 20, which arrived just before the war ended.

The latest addition to the Flying Machine Press library, SPAD Two-Seat Fighters of World War I has the most extensive coverage—history, evolution, combat use, photos, colour profiles, and scale drawings—of these aircraft ever published.

Eagerly awaited by World War I aviation buffs and modellers, this volume is an important contribution to the history of SPAD aircraft.
