Junkers Flugzeugwerke AG has flown its microlight recreation of a 1930s German sport aircraft.

As previously reported in Pilot, the Junkers Junior A50 is based on the A50 Junior from 1929, although the modern machine is built as a contemporary ultralight aircraft with current technologies.

Powered by a 100hp Rotax 912iS, the aircraft features Garmin avionics and a Galaxy parachute recovery system.

Junkers plans to certify the machine under the rules of the German aviation authority as an ultralight aircraft in the 600kg class. The first deliveries are scheduled for later this year. Junkers Flugzeugwerke AG also produces replicas of the historic Junkers F13.
