Grover Loening

  • American Planes: The Lessons of History

    One of our foremost aircraft engineers, Grover Loening has been building airplanes since 1911. He was general manager of the Wright Company, Dayton, Ohio, 1913-1914; inventor of the strut-braced monoplane and Loening amphibian airplane; and was awarded the Distinguished Service Award in 1919 for the Loening two-seater fighting plane. He received the Collier Trophy in 1922 and the Wright Brothers Memorial Trophy in 1952. Mr. Loening speaks with authority and experience in this striking comparison of aircraft development here and in Europe.
