The Thulin Typ A is a Swedish single-seat trainer aircraft produced by the AB Enoch Thulin Aeroplanfabrik. It is a copy of the French Blériot XI.

The aircraft made its first flight in 1914, and production began soon after. Most Typ As went to Thulin's own flying school, and three to the Swedish Air Force, which used the type until fall 1916. The production ended in 1918 after 23 Typ As were built.
