The most successful training aircraft of the United States during the First World War. The JN-4 Jenny aircraft from Curtis was an improved version of the JN-3. His success in the role of training aircraft, "Jenny" is largely due to the incredibly reliable engine OX-5. America's entry into World War I in April 1917 led to orders for the Jenny plane, the total production by the time it was completed shortly after the end of the war in November 1918 amounted to 6000 copies. It is possible that the greatest work of this type, however, was made after the war, when hundreds of extra cars were cheaply sold to private buyers, which helped the formation of US civil aviation.
