Avro 519

The Avro 519 was a British bomber aircraft of the First World War, a development of the Avro 510 seaplane.

They were two-bay biplanes of conventional configuration with greatly uneven span.

Two single seat examples, powered by a single 150 hp (110 kW) Sunbeam water cooled engine, were ordered by the RNAS in early 1916.

This was soon followed by orders for two modified aircraft for the Royal Flying Corps.

These were fitted with seats for a crew of two and had more powerful (225 hp/168 kW) Sunbeam engines

Only 4 aircraft were built.
