A-1 Curtiss Model E (Triad) seaplane Renumbered AH-1. Believed no longer on charge by the time that the second alphanumeric series was instigated. A-2 Curtiss pusher landplane Renumbered E-1. Contemporary paperwork (dated 27/3/14) refers to this a/c being renumbered AH-2, but this is contradicted by all other sources! A-3 to A-4 Curtiss pusher seaplanes Renumbered AH-3 and AH-2.
