The Bücker Bü 133 Jungmeister (Young master) was an advanced trainer of the Luftwaffe in the 1930s. It was a single-engine, single-seat biplane of wood and tubular steel construction and covered in fabric.The Bü 133 was a development of the Bücker Bü 131 Jungmann two-seat basic trainer. First flown in 1935 (by Luise Hoffmann, the first female works pilot in Germany),it was slightly smaller than the Bü 131. The prototype, D-EVEO, was powered by a 140 hp (104 kW) Hirth HM506 inverted, air-cooled inline-6 engine. The aircraft showed "astonishing agility" at its first public appearance, the 1936 International Aerobatic Championship at Rangsdorf,but the Bü 133Agarnered no orders; only two Bü 133Bs, with 160 hp (119 kW) Siemens-Bramo Sh 14A radials, were built.The main production type was the Sh 14A-powered Bü 133C, which had a distinctive cowling and a 13 cm (5.1 in)- shorter fuselage,and the same fine aerobatic performance as the Bü 133A.The Bü 133C racked up numerous victories in international aerobatic competition, and by 1938 was the Luftwaffe'sstandard advanced trainer. Fifty-two were manufactured under licence by Dornier for the Swiss Air Force (which kept it in service until 1968),. A similar number were built for the Spanish air force by CASA, and were designated the CASA 1-133. The Jungmeister design remained competitive in international aerobatic competition into the 1960s.April 2008, the Bücker 133 E « Jungmeister », F-AZDT, that has been restored by the owner and pilot François Devin in Chavenay airfield (West of Paris) took to the air again.This restoration lasted seven years ! Seven years made of hard work, good time and less good time, which added to the emotion of this first flight after its restoration.This plane is composed of various elements of German, Swiss origin and wings of manufacture "Canu-Lautourd" copiedaccording to Spanish damaged wings by the preceding owner, Mr Lucien Canu. The engine of F-AZDT is « Lycoming O360 », it replaces it « Siemens Sh 14».
