W.34


Flygindustri AB civil production included the single-engined, six-passenger W 34 built up to 1935.

The W.33 and W.34 light transports were derived from the earlier F13. The prototype was a converted F13 with a lengthened fuselage and more powerful engine, but with the fixed undercarriage retained. The W33 and W34 came in ski and float versions and copious other variants. The W34 had a light-bomber counterpart.

There were nearly 200 W33s built, but the W34 totalled nearly 1800 examples, which were extensively used by civil operators. A total of 900 saw service with the Luftwaffe as trainers and transports during World War II.

A W33 made the first east-west Atlantic crossing in 1928 from Dublin to Labrador.
