Euler-Voisin
 
In October 1908 August Euler founded the Euler-Werke in Frankfurt and managed to negotiate a license agreement with the Voisin brothers. In 1909 he created a factory at Griesheim Airport and started large scale aircraft production. The first few machines built were similar to Voisins, but Euler was not pleased with the original design and soon started to modify the construction, for example by lightening it, redesigning the landing gear and introducing ailerons.
 
Euler qualified for German pilot's licence No. 1 on December 31st, 1909. Prince Heinrich of Prussia took his pilot's certificate on an extensively modified example of the type. At least 30 other Germans learned to fly on this aircraft.
