The Bücker Bü 133 Jungmeister (Young master) was an advanced trainer of the Luftwaffe in the 1930s. It was a single-engine, single-seat biplane of wood and tubular steel construction and covered in fabric.
The Bü 133 was a development of the Bücker Bü 131 Jungmann two-seat basic trainer. It was slightly smaller and fitted with a more powerful engine, which gave it excellent aerobatic performance.
The Bü 133 served as an advanced trainer with the Luftwaffe, its aerobatic capability suiting it particularly for early training of fighter pilots.
It was manufactured under licence for the Swiss Air Force by Dornier and for the Spanish air force by CASA. Approximately 50 aircraft were produced for each country.
