A.I
Role Reconnaissance aircraft
Manufacturer Fokker
Designed by Martin Kreutzer

The Fokker A.I (Fokker designation M.8) was a two-seat observation aircraft of the 1910s, powered by a 75 kW (100 hp) Oberursel engine. The aircraft resembled the Fokker E.I. The A.IIs were A.Is license-built by Halberstad. The origins of the A.I, A.II and A.III were in a Morane-Saulnier Type H purchased from France. This led to the Fokker M.5 designed by Kreutzer. Fokker gave many aerobatic demonstrations in the M.5 on the eve of World War I. The M.8, was ordered as the A.I by the Luftstreitkräfte (German Air Service) and Fokker produced between 30 and 40 of them.
