Advertisement in March 1917 Deutsche Luftfahrer Zeitschrift.

Camilio Castiglioni, primary owner; Igo Etrich, designer and, perhaps, a minority owner; Karl Caspar, perhaps a minority owner; Ernst Heinkel, chief designer.

Company formed by merger of Brandenburgische Flugzeugwerke and Hansa Flugzeugwerke, July 1914. Produced 2-seat biplanes, armed and fighter flying boats, reconnaissance aircraft (also made by Phönix Flugzeugwerke and Ufag in Austria), torpedo-bomber seaplanes and other seaplanes. In 1916, Hamburg-Fuhlsbuttel factory was separated (it became Hanseatische Flugzeugwerke Karl Caspar AG). Firm closed 1919.

In 1917, in the advertisement pictured here, the firm (A.G.) gave a location and telephone contact in Berlin (Rummelsburg, which is within Lichtenberg; see w:de:Berlin-Rummelsburg). Here they say they can supply replacement parts and accessories for all types of airplanes; they also offer serial delivery of aircraft frames and wingsets.

A.-G. or GmbH

A.G. form of firm listed in Dir 1920, p28, at Brandenburg a.H., with flying ground at Briest.

A.-G. is used on the company's patent filings (that we have found so far.)

The GmbH form presumably is used in one or more of the sources below.
