The Junkers T 29 was a single-engine, low- wing training and sports aircraft made by the German manufacturer Junkers in 1925 . Since no buyers were found, only two aircraft were built and used by Junkers as test aircraft.


The T 29 was an all-metal aircraft with corrugated iron planking. A 59 kW Junkers L-1 engine was used in it.

A special feature for a sports machine of the time was the adjacent seats in the open cockpit. This should improve its use as a training aircraft. A kind of roll bar was located above the cockpit, which protected the occupants in the event of a rollover. This gave the aircraft the nickname "iron".

The use of the so-called Junkers double wing according to DRP no. 396621 (German Reich patent) dated June 12, 1921 , as they were later used on the Junkers G 38 and Junkers Ju 52 / 1m .
