Albatros L.58


albatrosl58


A high-wing monoplane airliner of 1923 built in two models. The earlier model carried 5 passengers and was powered by the Maybach engine.


The later model carried 6 passengers and was powered by a Rolls Royce Eagle VIII. This engine gave a lower wing loading a greater endurance of 5 hours, as opposed to 4 hours of the Maybach, and an improved range of 735km.


The L.58 was constructed of wood with three-ply covering. The enclosed cabin carried six passengers under the wing and the pilot was seated immediately forward of the wing leading edge in an open cockpit. Petrol and baggage were carried in the wings. Seven were built with two sold to the Soviet Union.
