The Arado Ar 199 was a floatplane aircraft built by Arado Flugzeugwerke. It was a low-wing monoplane, designed in 1938 to be launched from a catapult and operated over water. The enclosed cockpit had two side-by-side seats for instructor and student, and a third rear seat for a trainee navigator or radio operator.

Two prototypes were built, but the Luftwaffe's requirements changed and no production aircraft were built. The two prototypes, D-IFRB and D-ISBC did serve as trainers[1] and were used for air-sea rescue operations from Northern Norway.[2]
