"The Curtiss Model J (along with the Curtiss Model N) was a prototype tractor configuration aircraft that became the basis for the Curtiss Jenny series of aircraft...The Model J had the engine mounted on the nose of the aircraft with a tractor propeller and was covered with clear doped linen or cotton, with tandem seating and conventional landing gear with a tailskid. The biplane wings were built without dihedral and the upper wing was considerably greater in span than the lower and fitted with ailerons. The Curtiss Model J S. C. No. 30 became the testing prototype for the JN, earning the title as the first "Jenny"."
