ⓘ Aeromarine BM-1

Aeromarine developed the AM-1, AM-2, and AM-3 designs in 1923 for an earlier proposal. The BM-1 was a clean-sheet design for the new effort.

BM-1 was a single place biplane with a conventional chassis and steerable tail skid. The plane was used dropable main fuel tank between the main gear to meet the requirements of impact resistance and a small tank 10 gallons in the upper wing. The control cables are not intended for the use of the pulleys. The wings had extra metal or wooden spars with doped aircraft fabric covering. The fuselage uses all-metal construction aluminum beam with aluminum coating. The horizontal stabilizer used a Jack screw for adjustment. The presented engine the radiator is attached to the front of the passage to the propeller shaft.

BM-1 has not progressed beyond the design stage.
