— was a true pioneer in American aviation. He was an author, an official with
the Wright brothers, chief engineer of the U.S. Army’s flying school in San
Diego, and chief engineer of the Sturtevant Aeroplane Company before forming his
own Loening Aeronautical Engineering Company in New York City in 1917.
