Bucker Bu 131 "Jungmann" History
The Bucker Bu 131 "Jungmann" (Young man) biplane was designed by Carl Bucker in the early 1930's and first flew in 1934. The agility and sturdy nature of the Bucker Bu 131 biplane, with it's steel tube fuselage and wood/fabric wings, was noted by the German Luftwaffe who consequently selected the Bucker Bu 131 "Jungmann" as their primary basic trainer in 1935.

Bucker Bu 131 "Jungmann" WW2 Production
Following the outbreak of WW2, production of the Bucker Bu 131 "Jungmann" was transferred to Aero in Czechoslovakia, allowing Bucker Flugzeugbau's production to be focused on more important licensed designs, which included the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 fighter and the Junkers Ju 87 dive bomber.

Licence Built Bucker Bu 131 B Jungmann's
The Bucker Bu 131 Jungmann was destined to be the last biplane to be produced in Germany, but after the war other companies, including CASA in Spain and SSH Janusz Karasiewicz in Poland, resumed production. In recent years a limited number of Bucker Bu 131 Jungmann's have been produced by Air Res Aviation in Poland, from the old Aero plans, but with the addition of a modern, more reliable and powerful engine.

Various scale models, model kits and plans of this aircraft have been available in the market place.
