P.Bowers Curtiss Aircraft 1907-1947 (Putnam)

Model FL (Model 7)

   The single FL is a good example of Curtiss innovation - the mixing of major components of two existing models to form a new one. A set of stock Model L wings on the hull and powerplant of' the Model F flying-boat resulted in the entirely logical designation of FL for the single experimental model produced in 1917. It was owned by the American Trans-Oceanic Corp and was advertized for sale in September 1919 at $6,000.

Fitting Model L wings to a Model F hull to produce the Model FL is representative of Curtiss's method or developing new models quickly.
