The Messerschmitt M 18 has always been of interest to the author. Especially, because of the operation with the German airline Nordbayerische Verkehrsflug (NOBA) and its successor Deutsche Verkehrsflug (DEVAG). For many years, these two airlines managed to compete with the national airline Deutsche Luft Hansa on the domestic services. The low-cost airline flew with the economical Messerschmitt M 18, developed closely by Willy Messerschmitt and the airline’s founder Theo Croneiβ. The aircraft only saw limited service outside Germany and was only sold in small numbers to China, Portugal, Switzerland and USA. This book describes the technical development and operation of the aircraft.
