Historical Data:

The Junkers T19 was another design of a series of highlever monoplane designs. Offically this aircraft was designed as a training and sport aircraft, but in 1922 the costs of all-metal aircraft compared to the simpler wooden/textile constructions were to high to generate a market demand for such aircraft. Therefore Junkers used the T19 design as an experimental aircraft to gather more expierence about highlever monoplane and double wing aircraft. The cockpit was capable for three persons, one pilot and two passengers and was equipped with a door on the right side.

On July, 14th 1922 the first flight was performed. A total of three aircraft were produced in 1922. Each of them was equipped with a different Siemens engine and got an own serial designator. The second T19 (c/n 529) was also used as a test bed for the Amstrong Genet engine (59kW) and for the Junkers L1 (57kW). In 1923 and 1924 the T19 was used for some comptest flights and showed good results. The experiences from the T19 design were later used for the developement of the high lever aircraft of the Russian Fili production.
