German aircraft manufacturers started designing aircraft Junkers F 13 1914 in the year, in fact, at the dawn of the era of aircraft construction, however, despite the lack of proper experience in the aircraft industry, the new aircraft has been very promising for its time, which made him popular and in demand.

Despite the fact that the aircraft Junkers F 13 was designed at the beginning of the second decade of 20-century aircraft has excellent aerodynamic component that is due to a qualified aircraft engineer approach to the development of this aircraft. Good aerodynamics of the aircraft provided the aircraft maneuverability is very high figure, and does not cause problems in the management of aircraft of this model, in connection with which the aircraft project was officially recognized as a success.

At its board aircraft Junkers F 13 can carry out the transportation of both people and goods, and, during the Second World Won, the aircraft is also very effectively used for the carriage of the German military command and ammunition, and due to the relatively simple design of the aircraft, the value of the project was low enough to not cause problems with the popularization of the current project.

The first airplane flight Junkers F 13 held 26 June 1916 years, however, in the initial stages of testing the technical design flaws were discovered that, however, when led to the closure of the project, but required its completion, and since 1919, the aircraft Junkers F 13 It became mass-produced. Since its release, which lasted from the 1919 1932 on year, the German aircraft manufacturers 322 air vessel of this model were built, of which, up to now, there is still only a few copies.

Over its history, the use of about 100 units of this equipment were used in the armed forces of Germany, however, most of the aircraft is positioned as civil air engineering.

The aircraft Junkers F 13 piston engine equipped with the brand BMW IIIa, traction power which is 182 hp, allowing the aircraft and very high rate of duty, and quite acceptable speed of its flight, component 170 km \ h. (The maximum rate). The maximum range of the aircraft Junkers F 13 flight distance is limited in 1200 kilometers.
