Jacob Lohner 2-seat biplane and flying boat with single pusher engine, 1913, led to production of over 1,000 armed and unarmed reconnaissance biplanes and several hundred fighter, trainer, and reconnaissance flying boats until 1917 and single and 2-seat scouts, 1918.

Starting date of 1913 in the Gunstons appears incorrect. Contemporaneous publications say that Austrian Army Captain (Rittmeister) Hans Ritter Umlauff von Frankwell qualified for his pilot's license in a Lohner aircraft in August 1910, that he had flown a Lohner aircraft before then, and that in December 1910 it was announced that he would be testing a new novel Lohner biplane.
