Bucker Bü 180 Student

Following design and the initiation of production of the Bü 133, the company turned its attention to the development of a two-seat cabin monoplane of high-wing configuration which carried the designation Bücker Bü 134. The single prototype of this aircraft proved to be unsuccessful when tested and its development was abandoned. Convinced that future trainers would need to be of monoplane configuration, the company persevered and designed another two-seat trainer of low-wing cantilever layout. Designated Bücker Bü 180, and later named Student, this was built in small numbers for civil use. The prototype was flown in the autumn of 1937, and was followed by the production of a small number for civil use.
