Paulat Hydro-Aero
Ion Paulat built the first Romanian seaplane in 1911. As the Ministry of War provide no assistance to him, Paulat had difficulties obtaining an engine to power the aeroplane. In the end - through friendly help in order to conduct a flight test - he obtained one of the two 55 hp Hilz engines needed. With one engine the machine flew in early November 1911, making a jump of 10 meters at a height of 35 centimetres.
As Paulat did not succeed in obtaining the required second Hilz engine, he designed the light 1912 Hydro-Aero Monoplane - suited for one Hilz engine
