Avia BH-29 Aircraft Information

Avia BH-29

BH-29

Manufacturer: Avia
Designed by: Pavel Bene and Miroslav Hajn
First flight: 1927

The Avia BH-29 was a trainer aircraft built in Czechoslovakia in 1927, in the hope of marketing it to both the Czechoslovakian Army, and to Czechoslovakian Airlines as a primary trainer. It was a conventional design, an unequal-span biplane of wooden construction and with tailskid undercarriage. The pilot and instructor sat in tandem open cockpits.

When no interest was shown in the aircraft domestically, Avia undertook a promotional tour where the aircraft was demonstrated in eighteen European countries, but this did not result in any sales either and no more than a handful were built.
