By engaging the twin-brothers Siegfried and Walter Günter a new era of aerodynamics broke out at Heinkel, with the sports- aeroplane Heinkel 64 as the first manifestation.

The 'Heinkel-dreamteam': The aerodynamicists Walter and Siegfried Günter, in addition Karl Schwärzler, Heinkel's chief-engineer.

The Günter Brothers, already wellknown about their sports-aeroplane 'Bäumer Aero', took a similar effort in the details and aerodynamic honing of the Heinkel 64. It is therefore not by chance, that there exists a certain similarity between the two aeroplanes.

Bäumer Aero 'Sausewind' IV

Sports-aeroplanes and their contests became increasingly popular in Germany. The development was vehement. Whereas the average speeds in the international tourist plane contest 1930 were about 170 km/h, they reached already over 200 km/h in 1932; the Messerschmitt M29 reached a top speed of 268 km/h during the preparations to the contest. In the contest, the Heinkel as the fastest aeroplane scored 241km/h
