Aero Boero AB-210
|First flight||22 April 1971|
|Developed from||Aero Boero AB-180|
The Aero Boero AB-210 is an Argentine civil utility aircraft, a development of the AB-180 with improved performance delivered by a fuel-injected engine. Unlike previous aircraft by this manufacturer, it also featured tricycle undercarriage, but retained the same general high-wing configuration. Only a single prototype was built, first flying on 22 April 1971.
The aircraft was later re-engined with a more powerful Lycoming O-540 and redesignated the AB-260 (not to be confused with the unrelated Aero Boero 260AG). A second example was also built to this standard, but no serial production ensued.
- The basic version developed from the AB-180, powered by a Continental IO-360 engine, one built.
- Further proposed development powered by a 260hp (194kW) Lycoming O-540 engine, one built.
