Nicknamed the Strativarius of antique light aircraft of the 1930’s, the Bucker Bü-131 came to be 1934 with its first flight occurring on April 27th of that year. The Jungmann (pronounced Young man) was designed by Karl Bücker. The first model of Jungmann, the Bü-131A, went into production and rapidly became an extremely popular aircraft of that time, with most of Europe wanting these to train their pilots. Not long after the release of the 80HP Bü-131A did the Bücker Flugzuegbau firm release their second Edition version of the bi-plane, the Bü-131B mode. The B had the updated new Hirth A-2 sporting 105 HP. This new version was then licensed out to many European countries including Spain, Japan, Romania, Hungary, Yugoslavia, and Switzerland. (Many years later, other countries would go into a limited production runs of the popular design).
