This was a later development of the design of the unsuccessful PY-1 Navy flying boat and it's more successful commercial derivative, the Commodore. Unlike it's predecessor, the P2Y won a substantial production order from the Navy, and led to the design of the famous Catalina flying boat. Some of these P2Y aircraft were still in service, in a training role, when WW-II began.

These were still in service with Navy Patrol Squadron VP-5F at Coco Sola N.A.S., Panama canal Zone in 1937 when my father took command of that squadron.
