Biographical / Historical
Edouard Nieuport (1875-1911) was a French engineer and designer who first worked with motorcycles and automobiles before turning to aircraft. Nieuport's first aircraft was built in 1908, and from this design came the famous Nieuport fighters, which were used by virtually all of the Allied nations during World War I. Nieuport also set world speed records in 1911, before his death later that year when he crashed while demonstrating a fighter to the military. Nieuport's brother, Charles (d. 1913), was also a pilot.
