Arado Ar 77
The Ar 77 had a thick cantilevered wooden wing which was skinned with plywood on the under-surfaces and covered with fabric on the upper surfaces. The fuselage was built up from welded steel tubing covered with fabric. Tail surfaces were built up from steel tubing and were also fabric covered,not following Arado's trademark layout of a fin and rudder forward of the tailplane;instead the tailplane was high mounted on the fin and supported by steel tube 'N' struts. Elevators and rudder were covered with fabric, aerodynamically balanced in the Ar 77A and without aerodynamic balance horns in the Ar 77B. The fixed tailwheel undercarriage consisted of cantilevered oleo-pneumatic main-leg struts fitted with brakes and a tail-wheel under the rear fuselage. The four crew members, being Pilot, Navigator or Instructor, and two Students, were accommodated in a cabin with full length windows along the fuselage sides.

The Arado Ar 77 was characterised by the relatively low placement of its engines in relationship to the wings. There was room for two people in the cockpit, and four other people, such as radio operators, in the fuselage. However, the Luftwaffe criticized the aircraft, instead, preferring the Focke-Wulf Fw 58.
