Paul A. Schweizer, soaring pioneer and the second of three brothers who founded Schweizer Aircraft in the 1930s, died on August 18 at the age of 91 in Elmira, N.Y. Long out of the sailplane business, Schweizer Aircraft has since expanded into airframe subcontracting work and helicopter development and manufacturing but is still family-run.
