|Role||Military trainer aircraft|
The Fokker S.III was a biplane trainer aircraft of the 1920s. It was of conventional configuration, seating the pilot and instructor in tandem, open cockpits. The single-bay wings were staggered and of unequal span.
Fokker's US subsidiary, Atlantic Aircraft imported a single example in 1927 in an attempt to interest the US Army in the type, but this did not result in a sale. The aircraft was eventually purchased by the Wright Aeronautical Corporation and used as an engine testbed until broken up in 1929.
