The Junkers T 19 aircraft was built in 1922 as a cantilever high- wing aircraft under project manager Ernst Zindel .


The machine, initially developed as the J 19, was built as a high- wing aircraft on the advice of aerodynamicist Phillipp von Doepp (1885–1967). It was actually designed for three people with a third seat installed against the direction of flight. Most of the time, only two seats were installed.

The first flight of the machine, known internally as the Trihoch , took place on July 14, 1922 in Dessau. The machines were either equipped with a Sh 4 , Sh 5 or Sh 12 , Siddeley-Deasy or a Junkers L 1 or converted to these engine types.

In Dessau, the T 19 was mainly used for investigations into the controllability of aircraft, aerodynamic stability and shape. Only three pieces were built. The aircraft exhibited problematic flight behavior, although this type was also used to a small extent in sporting competitions. The construction served as a template for the later T 23 and T 26.
