As always with Curtiss aircraft, it's very hard to keep track of all the various designations. This airplane has been referred to at various times as the: Curtiss Hydroplane,"Triad" hydroaeroplane, Model E, and the A-1.

In flight video of the A-1 can be accessed on YouTube search, enter JFL9180
The A-1reproduction from the Curtiss Restoration Shop was powered by an original Curtiss 90hp overhead valve, water-cooled V-8 engine. You can also see flight of the 1914 America,the world's first multi-engine flying boat.
