STUMBURS, ALEKSANDRS

  • Non-flying member of the Aviation Regiment. Rank: Sargeant
  • Over the course of a few years in the late 1920s, Stumburs designed and built his own aircraft, primarily from parts from old aircraft. Stumburs may have been a self-taught pilot, but he did not hold a Latvian pilots license and, as the project neared completion, there was some concern in the Regiment about the airplane's airworthiness. Ultimately, on January 20, 1930, the Regiment Commander Colonel Skurbe ordered that the aircraft was not to be test flown.
