Development of the Bell P-59 "Aircomet", America's first jet-propelled airplane, was ordered personally by General H. H. Arnold on September 4, 1941. The British had freely provided data to the USA on its highly secret Whittle jet engine. The General Electric Company in Schenectady, New York, agreed to produce a prototype version, the Type I-A. Due to the proximity of the Bell Aircraft Corporation at Buffalo to the General Electric plant, it was selected to design and construct a fighter-interceptor around the new-type engine.
