The Aero A.35 was a Czechoslovakian airliner of the 1920s and 1930s. Designed for long-range flight, with a transatlantic crossing in mind, it saw service with CSA although no such crossing was ever attempted. A conventional high-wing monoplane, it was a very modern design for its day in all but one respect – the cockpit still had open sides. An extra passenger could also be accommodated here, beside the pilot.
Two A.35s were sold to an industrial company, and were among the earliest aircraft purchased as corporate transports.
