Aero Ae 02

The first single-seat fighter of original Czechoslovak design, the Ae 02 designed by Antonin Vlasak and Antonin Husnik was built by the Aero Tovarna Letadel A single-bay biplane with I-type interplane struts and ailerons on the upper wing only, the Ae 02 was of mixed construction with fabric-covered wooden wings and a dural-frame fuselage. Powered by an Hispano-Suiza HS 8Ba eight-cylinder vee-type engine rated at 220hp with all fuel accommodated by a tank between the undercarriage mainwheels and carrying an armament of two 7.7mm Vickers machine guns, the Ae 02 was flown for the first time in 1920. Piloted by Josef Novak, the Ae 02 was adjudged winner of the 1st International Flying Meeting held in Czechoslovakia in 1921, but only one prototype was completed, further development continuing with the Ae 04.
