The Bücker Bü 134 was a German single engine, high wing cabin monoplane prototype designed and built by Bücker Flugzeugbau GmbH.

Development[edit]

In 1936 the Bücker Flugzeugbau company developed their first monoplane design. The Bü 134 was intended as a light general aviation aircraft featuring side by side seating. The wings were foldable for convenient hangarage. Flight testing was not successful and the type was not put into series production. The single prototype aircraft, D-EQPA, was destroyed in a hangar fire on 21 May 1939.
