The Curtiss Model 57 Teal is an American monoplane amphibian designed and built by the Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company.[1] Two versions were built, a three-seater and four-seater but only one of each was built.[1]

The Teal was a monoplane amphibian with the pusher engine pod-mounted above the wing center section. Designed for the private user, but due to the economic pressures of 1930s America only one three-seater (Teal A-1 registered N969V [2]) and one four-seater (Teal B-1 registered N970V[2]) were built.
