Aeroplane Building & Flying Society


History

Members of the Aeroplane Building & Flying Society built at least two gliders in the 1910 to 1911 period. J.D. North, later of the Grahame-White and Boulton Paul companies, designed a biplane glider with forward tailplane which seems to have flown successfully. A monoplane glider was built by A.N. Myers (which may have been attributed to North and Myers), and both this and the North machine were to have been fitted with engines, although it is not known if they flew as such.
