The Arado Ar 69 was a two-seat German beginners school and sport biplane with an open cockpit, developed in 1933 by Arado Flugzeugwerke.

Design & development

Three prototypes were built, the Ar 69 V1 and Ar 69 V2 were powered by 78 kW (105 hp) Hirth M504A engines and the V3 was powered by a BMW Bramo Sh.14a radial engine. Featuring swept wings constructed from wood and a welded steel tube fuselage, the V1 and V2 represented the planned Ar 69A production aircraft and the V3 would have evolved into the Ar69B, production model.[1][2] No production aircraft were built due to the success of the rival Focke-Wulf Fw 44 Stieglitz.
