Remarks by Walter van Tilborg: "Best known as a manufacturer of the F.8L Falco and F.14 Nibbio designs by Stelio Frati, Aviamilano Construzioni Aeronautiche SrL. won the 1960 Aero Club d'Italia light sport and trainer competition with its P.19 Scricciolo (Wren). Designed by Ermenegildo Preti, this side-by-side two-seat light aircraft was of wood, tube and fabric construction with a fixed tailwheel undercarriage. Registered I-MAGY (c/n 301), the prototype was first flown on December 13, 1959 powered by a 95 hp Continental C90-12F engine. Two batches of 25 production aircraft were built (c/n 302 to 351) in the following versions.
P.19. The main production model and, like the prototype, fitted with a fixed tail wheel type undercarriage. Power came from an 100 hp Continental O-200-A engine.
P.19R. This special glider tug version, built from 1964 onwards, had a more powerful 150 hp Lycoming O-320-A1A engine and a reinforced structure. The prototype was registered I-MARM.
P.19TR. The P.19 was easily convertible to a fixed tricycle type undercarriage. The prototype of the P.19TR was registered I-GAGI (c/n 320) and had also a Continental O-200-A. Several P.19s were completed as, or converted to a P.19TR."
