The Model A was the first aircraft the Wright Brothers offered for sale, becoming in the process the first aircraft to be produced in series anywhere in the world. Produced in-house by the brothers, they also sold the production license overseas. Germany was by far where the highest number of license-built Wright saw the light: the Flugmaschine Wright GmbH made around 60 of them.
