In the early 1930s there was not so much light between a small airliner, a high-end private plane, and a combat aircraft. The Consolidated 18 was a dive-bomber variant of the Fleetster with a new metal wing and an internal bomb bay. The sole example was delivered to NAS Anacostia as the XBY-1 on 26 September 1932. Apparently it was not repaired after a landing accident at NAS Norfolk on 13 April 1933.

The third Fleetster is listed as sold to WWI aviator Frederick Trubee Davison, who was then the Assistant Secretary of War for Air. It was militarized as the Y1C-11, 31-380. It was later rebuilt to Model 17-2 standard with a six-seat cabin as the C-11A. It was photographed at Dearborn by the party of the Lockheed 8A Sirius NR115W Justice for Hungary which flew across the Atlantic in July 1931. Photo from: Jenőné Czapáry / Fortepan

The Fleetster was designed for use within South America by NYRBA Line, a forgotten competitor to Pan Am in which Consolidated's Reuben Fleet held an interest. The Fleetster would fly through the night with evening mail to catch up with the diurnal NYRBA flying boat at its night stop. Pan Am's powerful backers deprived NYRBA of a US Post Office contract. NYRBA could not survive and NC657M was returned to the factory. Consolidated's factory airfield north of Buffalo was also home to Bell. Photo from: Consolidated / Gerald Balzer collection

The US Army bought four Fleetsters as VIP transports, one Model 17-1 as the Y1C-11 and three Model 17-2s as Y1C-22s. The fresh C-22 designation was assigned even though the older aircraft was upgraded to much the same standard as the C-11A. Photo from: US Air Force
