Rieseler R III / 22 - German ultra-light aircraft, designed in 1922, the aircraft manufacturer «Stahlwerk Mark.».

German aviarazrabotchiki started designing single aircraft model Rieseler R III / 22 in 1919 year, that is, in fact, the new aircraft was developed at the dawn of aircraft design era, however, for its time, this aircraft has been very promising, although its scope was very limited.


Aircraft Rieseler R III / 22


The aircraft model Rieseler R III / 22 has a fairly compact dimensions, allowing the aircraft very high rate of agility and good handling, however, due to the use of fairly low-powered power plant, all of these promising properties descended almost to nothing, which, however, did not lead to serious problems for direct operators.

The aircraft model Rieseler R III / 22 is positioned as an ultra-light sports aircraft, however, this sphere of application is most likely related to the immediate period of active operation of this aircraft, since in the high-speed plan, the aircraft does not possess any significant parameters in In particular, its maximum speed is limited to an indicator of 95 km / h. In addition to sporting applications, the aircraft was also very actively used as a private aircraft, and, despite the rather limited operational use, the aircraft was quite popular.

The first flight of the aircraft Rieseler R III / 22 1922 held in the year, and due to the fact that the aircraft very successfully completed all required tests, the aircraft was sent to the serial production, which proved to be rather limited due to the limited its application.

Aircraft Rieseler R III / 22 able to carry on its board of only one person at the same time, space is very limited, which does not allow to place luggage or carry any loads. To the greatest extent aircraft has established itself as a sports aircraft, and, in this role aircraft used until the mid-30-ies, after which, with the advent of more modern sports aircraft, the need to operate the model completely disappeared.

Single aircraft Rieseler R III / 22 equipped power plant consisting of a piston aircraft engine brand Haacke HFM 2a, who having thrust in 34 hp, allows the aircraft to accelerate to cruising speed in 90 km \ h., While the maximum the distance over which the aircraft can carry air travel limited distance in 270 kilometers.
