Item DescriptionOriginally formed as Nieuport-Duplex in 1902 for the manufacture of engine components the company was reformed in 1909 as the Societe Generale d'Aero-locomotion, and its products (including ignition components) were marketed to the aviation industry. During this time, their first aircraft were built, starting with a small single-seat monoplane, which was destroyed in a flood. A second design flew before the end of 1909 and had the essential form of the modern aircraft, including a non-lifting tail (where the lift pushes down, as opposed to up as on the Bleriots) and an enclosed fuselage with the pilot protected from the slipstream.
