Hi,

Mr. L. Janoir was a French pilot,and in 1911 he designed his first monoplane,maybe called J-1,he worked for Deperdussin
in 1912,and he went to Germany,but return and help the same designer again,and in 1914 left to Russia,he employed for
Vladimir Lebedev,maybe created the J-2 in there.

He returned again to France and formed Les Ateliers d’Aviation L. Janoir in 1916,during 1918,the J-3 was appeared,it
was a two-seat flying boat seaplane,powered by single engine,mounted seperately in a beam above the rear of the
fuselage,and in the same year he had a patent for seaplane similar to J-3,except a second engine was fitted in front
of the propeller,the single propeller was powered by both engines.

The J-4 was like J-3 but had a twin boom and powered by two engines,remained unfinished Project.
