Enoch Leonard Thulin of Sweden studied aeronautics between 1908-12 and became a pilot in 1912. He wrote a thesis on aerodynamics and received a Ph.D. from Lund University in 1912. He founded AB Thulinverken at Landskrona, Sweden, in 1914 to build French-designed aircraft, having obtained a licence to produce the Bleriot XI and another licence to manufacture Gnome rotary engines. He sold some aircraft in Scandinavia and used part of his production in a flying school. He was killed in a flying accident in 1919. The company got into financial difficulties during WW1 and stopped manufacturing aircraft. The Thulin A was effectively a copy of the Bleriot XI, followed by the Thulin B, a in B (Morane-Saulnier MS 3L), Thulin D (Morane-Saulnier MS Parasol), then the Thulin E biplane, FA, G, and so on up to the Thulin NA.
