After an early career as a pilot, he participated with Henri Fabre in the construction of the first seaplane in 1910. Subsequently, he created a study workshop for the development of measuring instruments for air navigation, and invented the "Badin airspeed indicator" (speedometer) which will make its reputation. Resistant under the occupation, it resumed its activities in 1945, and its manufacturing will equip many planes including the Caravelle
