Rogožarski PVT
The Rogozarski PVT (Рогожарски ПВТ in Serbian, translated as Rogozarski PWT in German and as Rogojarsky PVT in some older English sources) was a single-engined, two-seat parasol winged aircraft designed as an advanced and fighter trainer in Yugoslavia before World War II.
In about 1933 the Rogozarski team of Rudolf Fizir, Sima Milutinović, Kosta Sivčev and Adem Biščević designed the PVT, a training aircraft with tandem open cockpits in an oval wooden monocoque fuselage. Its wooden, canvas covered wings were swept and parasol mounted well above the fuselage with pairs of lift struts to the lower fuselage and a central inverted V cabane. They carried long narrow chord ailerons, with prominent spades well clear of the upper surfaces
Sixty-one were built between 1935 and 1941, serving with the Yugoslav Royal Air Force until the fall of Yugoslavia in 1941. After that, some PVTs were used by the newly formed Croatian Air Force, sometimes as ground attack aircraft.

One PVT was converted to a PVT-H interim seaplane trainer. Three new PVT-H were built in 1937.
