This enables flights with the highest standards of reliability and safety.

    Global Unveiling: Junkers 50 Heritage

    With the global launch of the JUNKERS A50 Heritage, JUNKERS presents an ultralight aircraft that is faithfully reconstructed from the original design from the 1920s. In contrast to the JUNKERS A50 Junior, the JUNKERS A50 Heritage is equipped with a 7-cylinder radial engine (Verner Scarlet 7U / 124 hp) which, together with a wooden MT propeller and analogue instruments, provides an even more authentic flying experience. Beringer brakes and the Galaxy rescue system are carried over from the A50 Junior as standard equipment.

    JUNKERS A60 with canopy

    The JUNKERS A60 is the latest JUNKERS production model and, like its sister aircraft, is based on the historic design concepts which informed the construction of the A50 Junior. A newly developed tripod retractable undercarriage, and above all, the fact that the pilot and passenger sit next to each other in the cabin, provide a unique sense of style and an enhanced flying experience.

    The JUNKERS A60 will be presented to the public with canopy for the first time at the Aero Fair 2024.

    WACO YMF-5, built in Battle Creek (USA)

    These new-production, modern biplanes with their historic look are seeing increased interest in the European market. The WACO YMF-5 on display at the trade fair with its 300 hp/7-cylinder radial engine conveys the look and feel of flying in the “Golden Age” of aviation.

    The aircraft is hand-built in precise accordance with the original plans from the 1930s with great atention to every detail.

    About JUNKERS Aircraft GmbH

    The tradition of JUNKERS Aircraft goes back well over 100 years and was founded by Professor Hugo Junkers (1859 to 1935), who had a lasting influence on the development of aviation in the 20th century with his groundbreaking patents. Today, JUNKERS Aircraft GmbH has established a tradition of reviving forgoten and fading aviation brands. The first major goal was achieved with the replica of the JUNKERS F13 production, which began in 2018. Three years later, in 2021, the first prototype of the JUNKERS A50 Junior took of. In 2023, the A60 successfully completed its first flight. In 2024, the JUNKERS A60 and the JUNKERS A50 Heritage were launched on the market and we invite you to come celebrate the tradition and advancement of reviving aviation history.
