AB-210
Role Utility
National origin Argentine
Manufacturer Aero Boero
First flight 22 April 1971[1]
Number built 2
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.[2]

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.[2]

Variants[edit]

The basic version developed from the AB-180, powered by a Continental IO-360 engine, one built.[2]
AB-260
Further proposed development powered by a 260hp (194kW) Lycoming O-540 engine, one built.[2]
