The Aero Boero 260AG is an Argentine agricultural aircraft that first flew in 1973.[1] 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.
