Georg Wulf (1895 - 1927)

Georg Wulf (1895–1927) was a pioneering German aviator. Even as a boy, he was so passionate about flying that he liked to spend his time making model aeroplanes instead of going to school. He left school before completing his final exams to work with the aircraft designer Henrich Focke. Together with Focke, he established an aircraft factory where the two men built a monoplane. This was the precursor for Focke-Wulf’s first light aircraft to go into serial production. Wulf’s passion for flying cost him his life: he crashed during a test flight in 1927.
