ⓘ Aeromarine EO

The Aeromarine EO was designed as an updated replacement of the Aeromarine Model 44 for the customer Earl Dodge Osborn. Osborn was a former accountant for Aeromarine, assistant editor of Aviation magazine and future founder of Edo Aircraft Corporation. The aluminum hull was scaled down from the Aeromarine AMC design, offering advantages in durability, weight and the inability to become waterlogged.

Ohr was an open cab aluminium hull seaplane biplane with a Single point tractor engine mounted in the fairing on top of the wing, which also placed the fuel tank and oil tank. The upper wing was shocked at the front of the lower wing. The wings were built with spruce I beam spars and ribs of aircraft with fabric covering. The hull was built with four watertight compartments. The tip floats were all aluminum. Cross through the tube, took the wheel Assembly for ground movement.
