The Fokker F.XIV of 1929 was built at the New Jersey factory as a seven/nine-passenger transport. Fuselage and wings were of normal Fokker design, although the upper fuselage decking was of corrugated duralumin. The major differences between this and other Fokker transports was that it had a parasol-type wing carried on struts above the fuselage, and a pilot's open cockpit behind the passenger cabin and beneath a cut-out in the wing trailing edge.
