Saro or Saunders-Roe produced the Cutty Sark four-seat cabin flying-boat (or amphibian) as its first new design after formation in 1928. It was adopted for flying-boat and navigational training by Air Service Training Ltd (two 112kW Armstrong Siddeley Genet Major engines) and was exported as a coastal-reconnaissance aircraft (de Havilland Gipsy Major engines).
