The multipurpose aircraft of the Fokker F.II model began to be designed by German aircraft builders almost at the dawn of aircraft construction - the aircraft was to be widely used due to its unique for the given period aircraft capabilities and characteristics, reception if most aircraft of this period could transport an aircraft Its board only 1-3 people, the German aircraft designers were able to create a real airliner, capable of taking on board up to 5 people (including one member of the crew Ms.), or carry out the transportation of goods.

Due to the fairly large capacity aircraft Fokker F.II, greatly increased and the size of the fuselage of the aircraft, which led to a deterioration in handling (compared to 1-3 local aerial vehicles), as well as reduced agility almost to a minimum. In the future, through the creation of modified versions of the behavior of the aircraft Fokker F.II in the air to some extent improved, however, the big distribution data model has not received - for the entire period of German aircraft manufacturers was established 32 aircraft.

The first model airplane flying Fokker F.II held in 1919 year - in fact, over 15 years after the first flight of the aircraft created by the Wright brothers. Despite the fact that the aircraft was made at the dawn of the sphere of aircraft construction, the project has been very successful, so that all the required tests have been completed, and the aircraft was sent to production.

On board his aircraft Fokker F.II model can carry up to 5 people, including the addition of one member of the crew, and also to four passengers, which is quite acceptable. In addition, the aircraft Fokker F.II also designed and shipment on its board of various cargo, which was the only condition for the observance of the maximum take-off weight of the aircraft, which is 1900 kilos, depending on version and the version of the aircraft.

The aircraft Fokker F.II equipped with one engine brand BMW IIIa, the capacity of which is 182 hp Enough low power for this type of aircraft is largely affected the speed of flight, which could not exceed 150 km \ h. Later on Fokker F.II plane began to be used more powerful power plants that provided the aircraft and higher load capacity and higher travel speed.

There are four main options for the aircraft model Fokker F.II:

  • Fokker F.II - Basic production version of the aircraft;
  • Fokker F.IIb - An improved version of the aircraft, equipped with a more powerful engine;
  • Fokker-Grulich F.II - A modernized version with increased passenger capacity;
  • Fokker-Grulich F.IIb - An improved version of the version Fokker-Grulich F.II.
