While René Hanriot had created several pre-war aeroplanes starting in 1907, his company, Aeroplanes Hanriot et Cie, only built planes under contract until coming up with the famous Hanriot H.D.1.[1] As time wore on, Hanriot played less of a role in aeroplane design and passed the torch to M. Pagny and in 1913 A. Ponnier, designer of the ill-fated Ponnier M.1. Hanriot returned to business in mid-war and recruited Pierre Dupont to design the HD-1 (Hanriot-Dupont 1).[2]
