Design and development

The Loire 11 was the first original design by the company and was designed to meet a requirement for a general-purpose transport for operation in the French colonies.[1] It was a strut-braced high-wing monoplane with three-seats and powered by a 300 hp (224 kW) Lorraine Algol radial engine.[1] Only two prototypes were produced in 1930 and the project was abandoned in 1931 when the type failed to interest the French government.[1]
