Aero A.38 Aircraft Information

Aero A.38


Manufacturer: Aero Vodochody
Primary users: Československ Stxtnx Aerolinie CIDNA
Developed from: Aero A.35

The Aero A.38 was a Czechoslovakian biplane airliner of the 1920s and 30s. Following the relatively modern A.35, this aircraft was something of a throwback, marrying a fuselage derived from the A.35 to wings copied from the A.23. A few served with CSA, and others with French airline Compagnie Internationale de Navigation Arienne. These latter aircraft were powered by a French Gnome-Rhxne engine instead.


A.38-1 : Fitted with a Walter-built Bristol Jupiter radial piston engine. Three built.
A.38-2 : Fitted with a Gnome-Rhone Jupiter 9A2 radial piston engine. Two built.
