Standard J-1 Military Trainer Aircraft

The Standard J-1 was developed from the Sloan Model H, it is of note that Standard acquired Sloan in order to acquire the design of the Model H as it lacked a suitable design to sell to the U.S. Army Air Service who were placing lucrative orders for primary trainers as a US involvement in the European war (WW1) seemed inevitable. The J1 entered production in 1916 but Standard were not able to produce enough aircraft to meet demand so the J-1 was therefore also produced by Dayton-Wright, Fisher Body and Wright Martinas under licence.

By the end of production a total of 1601 aircraft had been produced. Following the end of WW1 the US military's need for military trainers was considerably reduced and Army surplus Standard J-1's became a common site across the USA on the barnstorming circuit. It is of note that continuing engine reliability problems resulted it the J-1 being less desirable than it's main competitor the Curtiss JN commonly known as the Jenny,  consequently many aircraft returned to the US after the war still packed in their original crates and were often sold as army surplus whilst still brand new and unassembled.
