In 1917, Orville was back in the airplane business after selling the Wright
Company in 1915. This time he didnít own the company named the Dayton Wright
Airplane Company, rather he served as a technical advisor.
Six Dayton businessmen formed the new company. The president of the new
company was Edward Deeds, vice-president and later, president of the NCR
Company. The vice- president of the new company was Charles Kettering, the
noted inventor. Orville was a good friend of both men.
