Established by entrepreneur, engineer, and motor sport enthusiast Glenn Hammond Curtiss, the Curtiss aviation company had produced more than 10,000 aircraft by the close of World War One. Initially interested in developing airships for the military, Curtiss also ran several flying schools and successfully manufactured prize-winning aircraft in pursuit of world speed records. By the time the US joined World War One, Curtiss owned the largest aircraft manufacturing plant in the world, capable of mass-producing aircraft to supply the war effort in Europe. In the following decade, Curtiss made innovative contributions to aircraft development, including the D-12 engine and the PW-8 aircraft. Among its many successes were the P-36 Hawk, P-40 Kittyhawk, AT-9 Fledgling and the SNC-1 Falcon aircraft. This new book edition of Aeroplane’s Curtiss Company Profile 1907–1947 showcases the aircraft of Curtiss and its contribution to history.
