National origin France
Manufacturer Farman
First flight 1920s
Number built 1

The Farman F.160 A.2 (sometimes referred only as the A.2 from the French military specification A = reconnaissance 2 = two-seater)[1] was a 1920s French sesquiplane designed as a military reconnaissance and observation aircraft. Only one was built.[2][3]


The open-cockpit tandem two-seat sesquiplane was displayed at the 1924 Paris Salon de l'Aeronautique. It was designed to minimise drag and the wide-chord wing was faired into the top of the fuselage and the aircraft was carefully faired.[2] The aircraft did not meet performance expectations and was scrapped,[2][3] and the F.160 designation was reused for a biplane bomber developed from the Farman F.60 Goliath.
