Jump to: navigation, search

Dr. Enoch Thulin, Ph.D., an industrialist and pilot, gave up flying full time to found Aeroplanvarvet I Skane (AVIS), Sweden's first aircraft company, with Oscar Ask. At that time, Sweden purchased Blériot, Farman, and Nieuport aircraft from France.

Built two modified 50hp Blériot monoplanes under license before Thulin and others took over the company in 1914, renaming it AB Enoch Thulins Aeroplanfabrik (AETA), which see.
