Aero Boero AB-95/115/150/180
The AB-95 aircraft (maiden flight in 1995) developed into the GA version family line in South America.
The many variants of the AB-95 are the AB-95 Standard, the AB-95 De Lujo with a 75kW (100hp) Continental O-200A engine, the AB-95A Fumigador ag aircraft with the O-200A engine (modified for crop dusting or spraying), the AB-115BS used as an ambulance and comes with a stretcher, the more powerful AB-95B, and the AB-95-115 that showcases a more streamlined engine cowling that houses an 85kW (115hp) O-235 engine, and main wheel fairings.
Aero Boero developed the AB-115BS and design featured included an increase in wing span, more fin sweepback and an improved range, and the AB-115 Trainer. These were modelled and developed based on the AB-95-115 and 450 units were sold to Brazil for use in aero clubs.
The model AB-180 came in three and four seat variants and flew on its maiden flight in the late sixties. It also came equipped with different wingspans and a significant improvement over the earlier AB-95 and AB-115 powered plants.
Further design improvement paved way for the AB-190RV that features a more powerful range and reprofiled fuselage and sweptback fin; the AB-180RVR intended for use as a glider; the AB-180 Condor with optional engine turbocharger and can be flown at high altitudes; AB-180AG for agricultural use and the twin seater AB-180PSA preselection aircraft for training student pilots. An experimental version known as the AB-180SP was also designed.
The AB-180 model features a more powerful powerplant over the AB-150RV and AB-150AG versions.
