The Avia BH-19 was a fighter aircraft built in Czechoslovakia in 1924. It was a low-wing braced monoplane derived from the Avia BH-3 and reflected its designers' ongoing belief that the monoplane configuration was the most suitable for a fighter aircraft. Initial trials revealed excellent performance but also displayed control problems and aileron flutter. Nevertheless the Czech Army were sufficiently impressed to tell Avia that it would order the BH-19 if the problems could be rectified.

Made by Avia.
