Schmidt, Bruno Hermann 1911 Biplane
U S Aerial Navigation Co 1911 Biplane
 
 Schmidt-1911
 
A large, rounded, startlingly modern fuselage for its day, using what appears to be almost geodesic construction, with chain-driven twin tractor propellers.
 
During 1910 and 1911 this aircraft was built in a shop adjacent to Mineola Field NJ. The design was basically sound and the plane performed well beyond expectations. In Jan 1912, US Patent #596448 was granted to the aeroplane per notification from Munn & Co, Patent Attorneys, NYC.
