Franz Schneider was an aero inventor, born 27 September 1871 in Konstanz, Southern Germany, deceased 24 May 1941 in Tokyo). He was both an aviation pioneer and an entrepreneur. He was an aero-designer playing roles in the Société Anonyme des Établissements Nieuport, Nieuport et Deplante, in Luft-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft m.b.H.
We have him filing quite voluminously in Hungary. The given name "Ferenc" is known formally and specifically as the Hungarian form of the German "Franz". The appropriate pages have been standardized as Franz Schneider. We have him filing as an Engineer (Mérnök) Aircraft Editor (Repülőgépszerkesztő) from Berlin/m Johannisthal. At least one patent gives the form "Röpülőgépszerkesztő". At least one gives the form "Légijárműszerkesztő". These are all "Aircraft Editor". His identification as an Engineer is also consistent.
This location and other data comports with our data on Luft-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft m.b.H. as well. Hungarian patent data has Luft-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft m.b.H. as the "legal successor"(Jogutódja) to Franz Schneider.
There are numerous patent references to specifically German as well as likely German parent patents to be found within the data on some of Schneider's patents filed in other nations. These seem to be missing from Espacenet, relative to Schneider himself as an individual. They may tie into patents for which one of the firms mentioned above is listed as applicant.
