[1] This 'fan' 4-cylinder engine was chosen primarily for its low price. Franz Miller, despite his name, was a Sicilian. His engines were built by the Officine Miller Costruzioni Aeronautiche of Turin. (In 1909, Miller was joined by Antonio Chiribiri - who later formed Fabbrica Torinese Velivoli Chiribiri & C.) Officine Miller offered ultra-light aircraft engines in a range of outputs - "motori extraleggeri per aeronautica da 36, 45, 60, 70, 90, e 100 HP" - but note that 22 hp isn't mentioned!

_____________________________________

* Caproni Bergamascha was originally Cantieri Aeronautici Bergamaschi. CAB was bought in 1929 and became a full Caproni subsidiary in 1931. Earlier CAB designs were built by Breda, Airone, and Caproni-AV.I.S. (AVio Industrie Stabiensi).

** Cesare Pallavicino designed a large number of aircraft. For Breda, he designed the Ba.15, Ba.18 , Ba.19, Ba.27, Ba.33, and Ba.39. For CAB, he designed the AP.1, CP.3, PL.3, and PS.1. For Caproni Bergamascha, he designed the Ca.135, Ca.308/Ca.309, Ca.335, Ca.331, and Ca.355.

Pallavicino went on to design the Argentinian I.Aé.30 Ñamcu. Projects Pallavicino 1 and 2 were R-R Derwent V jet-engined derivatives of the Merlin-powered Ñamcu.

*** Caproni Taliedo-built aircraft received their own designations. Although a Pallavicino design for Caproni Bergamascha, the Ca.135 was built at the Taliedo factory in Milan. Hence, the production bomber received a 'Century' designation rather than remaining the Ca.300 .

* OMI Reggiane retained its own Re. designations but the 400-Block was also assigned.Most, if not all, Ca.4XX designs were the work of Giovanni Pegna formerly of Piaggio. Aircraft given Ca.4XX designations were usually refered to as Caproni-Reggiane or simply Caproni designs.

Questions:
 - Any designations for late '30s flying boat airliner design(s) by Ing. Pegna?
 - Did 405 Savoia Marchetti SM.79 licence-built by Reggiane receive Ca.4XX numbers?

Questions:

 - Might the Predappio-produced Ca.163/Ca.164 account for missing Ca.600/Ca.601 numbers?
 - Did Predappio-built SM.81 (21229-21239) or Re.2001 (6547-6556) receive Ca.6XX numbers?

Just for completeness...

Caproni in Bulgaria

SFKB (Samoletna Fabrika Kaproni Bulgarski) or Airplane Factory Caproni, Bulgarian. The SFKB Kasanlak factory was originally completed (Dec 1926) as a Czechoslovakian Aero branch plant. It was bought by Caproni in 1930 (with a contract promising at least 10 years of use).

In Sep 1942, SFKB was nationalized and renamed DSF Kasanlak a branch plant of the Darzhavna Samoletna Fabrika or State Aircraft Factory (the main plant being Lovech).
