The Hall Aluminum Aircraft company produced a small number of flying boats during the 1930s, tracing their lineage back to Curtiss seaplane designs and British flying boats of WWI. The Hall flying boats served with the U.S. Navy and the Coast Guard during the war as maritime patrol aircraft, and when they were phased out by newer monoplane designs during the war they had the distinction of being the last of the U.S. Navy's last active biplane flying boats.
