The Curtiss Jenny was designed and produced at the end of World War I. Although it never saw active service in Europe during the war it was used primarily as a trainer for American Pilots during the war and after the war. It was used in Air Mail and after the Army phased out the Curtiss for newer aircraft in the mid and late 1920s, these aircraft were sold as surplus to the civilian population.
Many were purchased by companies trying to get US Air Mail contracts and young pilots that wanted to become famous professional stunt pilots. One of these notable individuals was Charles Lindbergh who purchased a Jenny with $450.00 and a motorcycle in Georgia for barnstorming in the Midwest.
