Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Curtiss Model 41 Lark was a commercial biplane manufactured by Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company that was used by pioneering airmail, airline and bush pilots in the 1920s. The biplane was based on the Curtiss Carrier Pigeon, a purpose-built aircraft for airmail operations. The Lark also had a longer span, lower wing, similar to the Carrier Pigeon. Some models were converted to floatplane configuration with a central mounted pontoon and wing mounted floats.A 200 hp Wright J-4 variant was tested for the United States Navy. The Navy considered this installation superior in performance to the Curtiss engined model. This version eventually became the basis for the Curtiss Fledgling series of aircraft.show more
