ⓘ Albatros L.71

Flight described the L.71 as a flying boat on wheels because, in the 1920s, such aircraft were almost the only modern pusher biplanes. Visually, the most unusual feature was the extreme stagger, introduced to optimise the view for each of the occupants of its tandem cockpits. Both wings had spruce spars, continuous from tip to tip, and spruce ribs. The larger upper wing had no dihedral but carried the ailerons, the lower wing had 1.5° of dihedral. Outward leaning, aluminium tube N-form interplane struts braced the wings but there was none of the usual flying wire bracing in the single bay, the wings were aerodynamically quite thick, allowing them to be internally braced cantilevers. The upper wing centre section was supported by a shorter pair of outward leaning N struts from the upper fuselage. Though the lower plane was set at mid-fuselage the interplane gap was large, to provide clearance for the two blade propeller.

The configuration of the pusher 55 HP 41 kW Siemens sh Halske 10 cylinder radial was aerodynamically faired into the rear edge of the upper wing, but not structurally connected to it, instead of the four tubes from the fuselage formed by the engine mount. The fuel tank in the front part of the upper wing, engines under the action of gravity by means of pressure. The fuselage was of mixed construction. From nose to lower leading edge of the wing, in the field, which included two cabins, it was flat sided wooden structure covered with plywood at the stern, it was built with wire braced welded steel tubing and fabric covering. This section included the lower wing mounting. The tail surfaces were fabric-covered, with a mixed steel and duralumin frame. The frequency stabilizer can be configured to trim the lawn. L. 71 was simple, fixed conventional gear with short axles hinged to lower fuselage longerons and braced forward with a short horizontal struts. Springs, telescopic legs with rubber shock absorbers were attached to the outer end of the shaft and at the top of the fuselage longerons.

L. 71 was flight testing at the end of January 1926. Two were built.
