Edmund Sparmann was an Austrian aero inventor filing in several nations. We have limited data, but are tracing the connections between his various filings.

Tentatively, we are dealing with two small patent families here, both having to do with stability, with the emphasis shifting between rudders and so forth to the role played by gyroscopes.

He is mentioned as an aircraft builder associated with Phönix Flugzeugwerke AG[1], an Austro_hunagian airplane manufacturer on which we are conducting further research.

In 1910 Sparmann occupied hangar 21b at Wiener Neustädter Flugfeld, the hub of Austrian aviation at that time.[2]
