Manufacturer Bücker
First flight November 1938
Number built ca. 4

The Bücker Bü 182 Kornett ("Ensign") was a single-seat advanced trainer developed in Germany for Luftwaffe service shortly before the outbreak of World War II. A single-seat low-wing cantilever monoplane, it was intended to give student pilots some experience with an aircraft with performance approaching that of a contemporary fighter, and could carry practice bombs. Production was shelved at the outbreak of war, and only about four examples were ever constructed, all of them destroyed around 1943.
