Wright Cyclone R-1820 Radial Engine


The Curtiss-Wright Corporation was established in August 1929 with the merger of Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company and Wright Aeronautical. A number of smaller companies, including Curtiss-Robertson, Curtiss-Caproni, Keystone, Loening (through Keystone), Moth, and Travel Air, also became part of the holding company.
There were three main divisions: the Airplane Division for military aircraft, Curtiss-Wright Airplane for civil aircraft, and Wright Aeronautical for engines.
