Farman-XXII was very similar to its predecessors Farman XV, XVI and XX. Major difference - strengthened landing gear, using U-shaped steel tubes instead traditional N-struts.
Since 1915 - serves as trainer.
In 1916 few Farman-XXII were installed on floats (identical to those used for Sikorsky S-5A). Each float fast installed separately using struts and bracing wires. Wing box was strengthened by adding tilted struts supporting upper wing tips.
Farman-XXIIbis differed by more powerful 100hp engine and strengthened gondola. In training schools it was also often used with 80hp Gnome or Kalep engines. Farman-XXIIbis was built in substantial amounts by domestic plants, and could be seen in pilots schools as late as 1923.
