Chinese Naval Aviation Service 1919-1937

Lennart Andersson

Continuing the series of e-books on Chinese aviation history ...

Between 1919 and 1937 the Chinese Navy designed and built not less than twelve different types of floatplanes, flying-boats and landplanes in its own workshops in Fuzhou, Xiamen and Shanghai.  In addition Avro Avians and de Havilland DH60 Moths were acquired for use as trainers and at Qingdao a number of Schreck FRA 17s and FBA 19s were used. Naval aviation continued to be an independent service until the war with Japan started in 1937.
