Brothers who built and raced speedboats conceived of airplane with one pair of wings and built monoplane 1909-1910, flown successfully by both brothers in May 1910; made entirely of parts from the U.S., is credited by Gunston as first successful American monoplane. Went on to build additional monoplanes and mono-biplanes, including 18 Heinrich military tractor biplane fighters for the U.S. Army. Also ran two flying schools. Company reorganized late 1915.
