Abstract

ONE of the youngest of the German Aircraft Construction Works is displaying a great deal of activity. This is the FockeWulf firm, of Bremen, which, hitherto mainly restricted in its activities to the construction of commercial aircraft, such as the A.16 Pullman, has now produced a light aeroplane possessing many good featuresthe S.24 Kiebitz, fitted with a 60h.p. engine. The Kiebitz is a small biplane with standard fuselage, answering the growing demand for a high performance and reliable light plane, of low price and cost of maintenance, of the type which Great Britain already possesses several examples. In the design of this plane, attention was paid, first and foremost, to marketing a general purposes knockabout machine, possessing over other German light aeroplanes hitherto produced the advantage of a considerably higher performance resulting from the use of a somewhat more powerful engine. The Kiebitz is a machine designed in accordance with the most uptodate information available, which, owing to its engine of only 60 h.p. and its weight empty of 365 kgs. 803 lbs., can still be included in the light aeroplane class, although it is quite suitable for acrobatic displays, equals the performance of larger sports planes fitted with an 80 to 100h.p. engine, of the type now currently in use, and even exceeds the speed of these machines.
