Engineering:Aero Boero 260AG
|Aero Boero 260AG|
|First flight||23 December 1972|
The Aero Boero 260AG is an Argentina agricultural aircraft that first flew in 1973. Despite the similarity in designation, it is completely different from and unrelated to the Aero Boero AB-260.
The 260AG is a low-wing monoplane with a single seat and fixed tailwheel undercarriage. Development commenced in 1971 as the AG.235/260, but various problems forced the project to stagnate and it was not revived until the 1990s.
