The Engine Specifications (003A-0)
 
The BMW 109-003 was designed in response to a 1938 Reichsluftsfahrt-
ministerium (RLM or State Air Ministry) request to develop a jet propulsion.  The first BMW 003 ran in 1940 and first flew in 1942.  Production began in late-1943 or early-1944.

About 3,500 had been produced by the end of 1944, most never reaching airframe plants.
