CANT 6

1st Flight 1925

The CANT 6 was a flying boat designed for Italian military service in 1925.

It was a large biplane of conventional design with three engines mounted in nacelles within the interplane gap.

Only a single example was produced in its original military configuration, followed by two further aircraft redesigned as 11-seat passenger aircraft.

One of these was retained by CANT, the other entered service with the Italy’s Airline ‘Società Italiana Servizi Aerei’.
