Around this time the United States, which had just entered WWI, started organizing their own Air Force from scratch, and they bought from the Allies all available types of aircraft to make up the complement of their air arm. France sold at least 140 Nieuport 24bis to the U.S., about a hundred Nieuport 24, and almost three hundred of the Nieuport 27. None of these planes saw combat; until the end of the war their participation was limited to the training of future pilots. After the war many Nieuports were sold to private owners, while all other machines were sent for scrap.
