On 30 August, 1913, the C-2 flew at Hammondsport under the complete control of a Sperry gyroscopic automatic pilot. The C-boats were redesignated as ABs with the same sequential numbers on 25 March, 1914. A-2/0WL/E-l/AX-l The A-2 was the Navy's second aeroplane, a Curtiss Model E delivered as a landplane on 13 July, 1911. The original engine was a four-cylinder 50 hp model, soon changed to a 60 hp V-8. The A-2 was converted to a seaplane in June 1912. Jt was further modified at Hammondsport in October 1912 to enclose the crew in a fabriccovered superstructure between the float and the wings, eliminating the interchangeability feature and making the A-2 a short-hull flying-boat.

A simplified hull and minor refinements in the production version resulted in the new designation of MF. Autoplanc (Model II). The unique feature of the Autoplane was that the wings and tail could he removed as a unit to permit the car component to operate as a conventional road vehicle, The Autoplane is reported to have made only a few short straight-ahead hops before development was abandoned upon US entry into the war. Span 40 ft 6 in (12,34 m); length 27 ft (8,22 m); height 10 ft (3,04 m). Speed range 45-65 mph (72-4·104'6 kmjh).

Curtiss flying-boats. The name resulted from the fact that design and construction of this large aeroplane were entrusted to the new Curtiss plant in Toronto. The official designation was C-l. Design work began in May 1915, and the prototype was completed in July. The early flights were made with Curtiss OX engines because the desired V-X models were not then available. Unconventional features or the three-scat Canada were the short fuselage, with the tail surfaces carried on booms, and the tandem-wheel-pair arrangement of each undercarriage unit.
