Production aircraft from the Great War or shortly thereafter include:


  1. The Curtiss Type F Flying Boat was a two-seat trainer, used in large numbers by the US Navy. Eighty were ordered by Russia, but not all were delivered.[1] The Russian boats saw operational use until phased out during 1915.[2]
  2. The Curtiss HA was a prototype seaplane fighter of 1918 that did not go into production.[3]
  3. The L-1 was a prototype triplane scout that did not go into production.[3]
  4. Three L-1s were redesigned with floats and tested, but the type did not go into production.[3]
  5. The MF Flying Boat was an improved version of the Type F. They were likewise used as trainers.[4]
  6. The Curtiss N-9 was the standard seaplane trainer of the US Navy and was little more than a Jenny on floats.[5]
  7. The Curtiss S-3 was a prototype triplane scout that did not reach production.[3]
