Built by Engineering Division and Boeing in 1922 as an army ground-attack pursuit aircraft, the PG-1 had a 37mm cannon in its propshaft and lots of armor plate. Ultimately it was rejected because of pilot's lack of forward visibility. First flying on 22 August 1922, three were built (AS64245-64247). The first PG-1 went to McCook Field as project P-240. The only pursuit aircraft with a "PG" designation, which was later transferred to the Powered Glider category. A second type of engine was tried in the PG-1; the Packard 1A of 350 hp.
