Adamoli-Cattani fighter

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adamoli-Cattani fighter
Role Fighter
National origin Italy
Manufacturer Farina and Officine Moncenisio
Designer Signori Adamoli & Cattani[1]
First flight 1918
Number built 1[1]

The Adamoli-Cattani fighter was a prototype fighter aircraft designed as a private venture by two Italian aircraft builders in 1918.

Design and development

The Adamoli-Cattani was intended to be the smallest practical biplane around the most powerful engine available to them, a 149 kW (200 hp) le Rhône M. The result was a reasonably conventional design, other than that the wings featured hinged leading edges in place of conventional ailerons. The Farina Coach Building factory in Turin began construction of the prototype; the Officine Moncenisio in Condove completed it.[1]

Operational history

Upon completion, ground testing revealed that the engine as installed could only deliver some 80% of its rated power, thus leaving the aircraft significantly underpowered. Limited tests continued until the end of World War I, when the Armistice made further development superfluous.[1]
