The SIAI S.19 was an Italian racing flying boat built by SIAI for the 1920 Schneider Trophy race. The S.19's engine was not ready in time for the race and the aircraft did not participate. The S.19 was a single-seat biplane flying boat with its engine mounted on struts above its hull and below its upper wing. The 373-kilowatt (500-horsepower) Ansaldo San Giorgio 4E-29 engine drove a two-bladed pusher propeller. Small stabilizer floats were mounted beneath the lower wing on each side.
