In 1909, the Wright Company was incorporated in the state of New York with Wilbur Wright as president. When Wilbur died in 1912, Orville took over as president of the company. In 1915, Orville bought back the shares of the company from its stockholders and sold the entire company to a new group of investors. In 1929, shortly before Glenn Curtiss died, the Curtiss Aeroplane & Motor Company merged with the Wright Aeronautical Corporation to form the Curtiss-Wright Corporation.
