ⓘ Aero A.11

The Aero A.11 was a biplane light bomber and reconnaissance aircraft built in Czechoslovakia between the First and Second World Wars. It formed the basis for many other Czechoslovakian military aircraft of the inter-war period. Around 250 were built, with some remaining in service at the outbreak of World War II.

Designed by Antonin Husnik, it was a development of the Aero A. 12 despite the fact that the numbering of the samples has to offer. In Hispano-Suiza 8Fb-powered version, A. 11h-s was built for the Finnish air force, the only foreign operator of the type. The Finns had eight aircraft of this type and used them between 1927-39.
