Sablatnig Flugzeugbau G.m.b.H., ca. 1920-1922. Original photograph, silverprint, 16,8 x 11,5 cm, stamp and annotation on verso. - KE 1 built 1920, constructed by Ing, Kromer, used by a Herrn Kromer, Bad Frankenhausen until 1945. With stamp and annotation on verso. Among the German designers little known in this country, but well worth watching, is Dr. Sablatnig, who started his aviation career as an Austrian pilot. If we remember right, he learned to fly in France, on a Nieuport, and later became pilot for the Union Werke. Berlin. Although an Austrian, Sablatnig served during the War in the German Naval Air Service. While with this service he first attracted attention by designing an undercarriage arrangement with which the rear ends of the floats were drawn upwards against the action of springs, thus increasing the angle of incidence and enabling the machine to make a quicker get off than was otherwise possible. The arrangement proved successful, and Sablatnig was given permission to produce original designs. He succeeded in getting financial assistance from a firm of Bankers (Moiling), and produced several designs. Since the cessation of hostilities Sablatnig has managed to get several of his designs accepted by the Inter-Allied Commission. Among the latest Sablatnig designs to be sanctioned is the little sporting monoplane Sablatnig K.E.I, shown in the accompanying photographs. This machine, which is of orthodox design, is a monoplane, with the usual monoplane bracing, and is chiefly remarkable on account of its low-powered engine, and for the fact that both its main planes and tail plane fold up for storage. The B.A.W. engine is a three-cylindered fan-type air-cooled of 20 h.p. only, with which the machine is said to attain a maximum speed of n o km. per hour (67 m.p.h.). The span of the machine is 27 ft. 0 ins., and the overall length is 17 ft. 6 ins. The weight of the machine empty is 407 lb., and with pilot and 2J hours' fuel she weighs 630 lb. - (From: Flight, OCTOBER 28, 1920). - (KE 2 built 1922/23, constructed by Ing, Kromer). - - - Austrian Josef Sablatnig experimented and flew before First World War. Moved to Germany and in 1913 became a director of Union Flugzeugwerke GmbH, where he did technical work and flying. When Union company went into liquidation (1915) founded above-named company in Berlin, famous for seaplanes used by German Navy but built other types also. SF1 floatplane (1915) developed into very successful SF2 (license-built by LFG and LVG); SF4 was single-seat fighter floatplane, built both as biplane and triplane; SF5 was widely used SF2 replacement; SF8 was last Sablatnig floatplane built in numbers (trainer of 1918). Landplanes included trainers, singleengined night bombers, and a monoplane. N1 was two-seat land fighter used at Kiel. After war developed civil types, including P1 four-passenger biplane and P3 sixpassenger high-wing monoplane. One light sports type built, but aircraft work ceased 1921. KEYWORDS:photo.
