Development of the aircraft model Focke-Wulf A 16 German aircraft manufacturers began in the early 20-ies of the last century. The new aircraft was to get a multi-purpose, in particular aircraft model Focke-Wulf A 16 supposed to operate as a vehicle for the transport of passengers and small cargo, however, for various reasons, in the medium series production of the aircraft and did not go that it was associated with a number of economic and technical factors.

The aircraft has a sufficiently high aerodynamic performance, however, quite large dimensions of the aircraft greatly reduced the maneuverability of the aircraft of this model, which caused some difficulties in its management. Moreover, the large size of Focke-Wulf A 16 aircraft have also become one of the reasons why the aircraft could not accelerate to high speeds, which in essence, forced to choose other potential operators of aircraft models.

Focke-Wulf A 16 aircraft first flight took place in June, 1924 years, and thanks to the fairly successful completion of all required tests, the aircraft was sent to production, where he was on a 1924 1926 year. Over the entire period of release, the German aviarazrabotchikami 21 aircraft of this model were built, of which, until now, we only know of the existence of the two aircraft.

At its board aircraft model Focke-Wulf A 16 can perform simultaneous transportation of four people - a pilot and three passengers, and, in addition to passenger traffic, aircraft also very actively exploited and for the transport of small loads, aided by a fairly large cabin of the aircraft, however, the maximum takeoff weight of the aircraft, component 970 kilos could not be exceeded, which imposes restrictions on the carriage of a cargo weighing up to 300 kg.

Aircraft Focke-Wulf A 16 piston aircraft engine equipped with one of the brand Siemens-Halske Sh 11, whose power is 100 hp With this powerplant, aircraft can reach a maximum speed of its flight in 145 km \ h., And to overcome the distance to the distances in kilometers 550.

Mass maintenance of aircraft Focke-Wulf A 16 model was carried out only up to 40-ies of the last century, it was mainly due to the advent of more sophisticated aircraft of this type.
