    Description

    The Piaggio P.149 is a 1950s Italian utility and liaison aircraft designed and built by Piaggio.

    General Information

    The aircraft was built under licence by Focke-Wulf in West Germany as the FWP.149D.

     

    The P.149 was developed as a four-seat touring variant of the earlier P.148. The P.149 is an all-metal, low-wing cantilever monoplane with a retractable tricycle landing gear with room for four or five occupants. The prototype first flew on 19 June 1953.

     

    Only a few were sold, until the German Air Force selected the aircraft for a training and utility role. Piaggio delivered 72 aircraft to Germany, and another 190 were built in Germany by Focke-Wulf as the FWP.149D.
