The Ponnier D. III was a French monoplane racing aircraft, designed to compete in the 1913 Gordon Bennett Trophy race, it finished a close second. During 1911 René Hanriot hired Alfred Pagny at Nieuport, as a designer. After Hanriot military prototypes failed to win orders at the Concours Militaire in late 1911 he sold his aircraft interests to another of his designers, Louis Alfred Ponnier. Pagny designed two similar single seat monoplanes for Hanriot and Ponnier, the Hanriot D. I and the Ponnier D. III. III, his designs reflected Nieuport practice with the replacement of Hanriot's graceful boat-like shell fuselages with flat sided, deep chested ones. The Ponnier D. III was a single seat, mid wing monoplane designed to compete in the 1913 Gordon Bennett Trophy race. Pairs of landing wires on each side met over the fuselage at a pyramidal four strut pylon and parallel flying wires went to the lower fuselage. An oil deflecting cowling, open at the bottom, surrounded the powerful double row, fourteen cylinder Gnome Lambda-Lambda rotary engine, which delivered 160 hp to a 2 m diameter propeller.
The oval, open cockpit was placed at just aft of the pylon centre. It had a finless rudder at the extreme rear of the fuselage and a straight edged tailplane mounted on the upper fuselage ahead of it; the elevators were interconnected, controlled by central wires. The D. III had a fixed, conventional undercarriage with mainwheels on a single axle mounted to the fuselage by pairs of wire cross-braced V-struts, plus a simple elliptical leaf spring tailskid. Jane's All the World's Aircraft 1913 describes a longer Hanriot D. III with a 100 hp Gnome engine; the D. III participated in the Gordon-Bennett Trophy race piloted by Emile Védrines; the elimination race over 100 km left four aircraft in the final, flown over 200 km on Monday 29 September. After an hour's flight the Ponnier finished second, just 66 seconds behind Maurice Prévost in a Deperdussin Monocoque.
