First flown in 1929, the Fleet 2 sold well in the civil market, was purchased by the U.S. Army as the PT-6 primary trainer and the U.S. Navy as the N2Y.  Modified with a hook to attach to an airship trapeze, the Navy used this aircraft to train Curtiss F9C Sparrowhawk pilots.  The Fleet 2 was also used as a trainer by the RCAF and Argentina.
