Potez-Heinkel CM 191
A new Heinkel company (mid of fifties) began by forming the Flugzeug Union-Süd Group, in collaboration with Messerchmitt AG., to produce 210 Fouga Magister for the new German air force. In cooperation with Potez, it developped from the Magister a new four seat executive, training and liaison aircraft known as the Potez-Heinkel CM-191. Heinkel was entirely responsible of the production.
The prototype of the four-seat Potez-Heinkel CM191 was flown for the first time at Toulouse on 19 March 1962. Jacques Grangette, Potez's chief pilot was at the controls, with P.Caneill. The CM 191 first flight lasted forty minutes and a second flight of one hour and ten munites duration was made on the same day.
Two prototypes were built. They were for many years as experimental aircraft to test various equipment or as liaison aircraft
Potez - Heinkel CM191 # 1 received a double registration from the beginning as D- 9504 and D- IHAM. It made its first flight in Toulouse March 19, 1962 and after 109 hr of manufacturer flight testing it was issued to the CEV Istres for testing .
It was subsequently delivered to Germany where it finished its career with 61 Erprobungsstelle Manching. This aircraft was registered in the United States, where it has changed ownership in 2008, to be based in Elk Grove, Illinois.
Potez - Heinkel CM191 # 2 received the registration D- 9532 and completed its career with 61 Erprobungsstelle Manching. This aircraft is now preserved and exhibited at the Am Technik Museum, Speyer, Germany.
