French engineer Clément Ader was called the “Father of Aviation.”

This street is named in honour of French engineer-inventor Clément Ader (1841-1925). Ader was an innovator in a number of electrical and mechanical engineering fields. He originally studied electrical engineering and, in 1878, improved on the telephone invented by Alexander Graham Bell. He established the telephone network in Paris in 1880.
