Aviatik B - Type P13

  The Aviatik P13 (the internal company designation) was first revealed to the public in May 1912. The P13 was a large, single-engine biplane of conventional wood, fabric, and wire construction fitted with either 3 1/2-bay (15 m span) or 4-bay (16 m span) wings. Engines used included the 85 hp Argus As.0, 100 hp Argus As.I, and 100 hp Mercedes D.I. These aircraft were used for training before the war and a few saw operational service early in the war.

Pre-war Aviatik P13 B-type was the first of a series of successful Aviatik two-seater designs.

Major Siegert, Kommandeur of the Fliegerstation at Metz, began night flying training for his pilots in February 1913. Although the practice was officially frowned upon, Siegert showed that the pilots lost any apprehension they might have had once they were introduced to night flying, and on 23 April he even held night manoeuvres when ten aircraft flew without incident, in co-operation with searchlights. In this early night flying scene at a military aerodrome an Aviatik biplane (whose rudder has suffered from retouching) is being put into the hangar. The aircraft in the foreground is a dual-control Otto-built Farman copy powered by a 100hp Argus engine.
