German aircraft developers began designing the Junkers W 33 aircraft in the first half of the 20s. The design of the new aircraft was based on the proven Junkers F 13 aircraft model, which significantly simplified the development process, as well as reduced design time and achieved a lower cost for this aircraft.

Thanks to a qualitatively new approach to the design of the aircraft of this model, the German design engineers were able to create a complete aircraft, which has a multi-purpose, in particular, the aircraft could be used for transportation to their occupants, to transport cargo, carriage of postal articles in teaching training integer, etc.

In addition to the operational properties, aircraft Junkers W 33 has received, and a new design of its fuselage, which has an improved aerodynamic shape, which ensured the aircraft higher speed and maneuverability performance.

Its first flight tests of the aircraft model Junkers W 33 been in 1926 year, and in fact due to the fact that the model has successfully completed all the necessary tests, the aircraft was sent to the serial production, which proved to be no less successful than the model Junkers F 13 - for the entire period of production, the German aircraft manufacturers was built 200 aircraft of this model (including an initial prototype).

In addition to the operation of aircraft in civil aviation, the aircraft is also very actively used, and during the Second World War, where the aircraft was used as a means of delivery of weapons and ammunition, as well as the training and supervisory tools.

At its board aircraft Junkers W 33 can carry up to three people, including 1-2 crew (a crew of two was employed only for military purposes) and 1-2 passengers. Maximum payload is accepted by this aircraft on board is 700 kg, which is very effective, especially if you take into account the fact that the aircraft can perform flights on distances of up to 800 kilometers.

The aircraft model Junkers W 33 equipped with piston power plant consisting of one motor brand Junkers L5, which is having a traction capacity of 306 hp, capable of a cruising speed of its flight in 165 km \ h.

To date, of the issued two hundred copies of the plane, known only to the existence of 4 aircraft.
