Aero A.38

By Wikipedia,
the free encyclopedia,

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 Aérienne. These latter aircraft were powered by a French Gnome-Rhône engine instead.
