MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR LOCAL LEGEND 11: THE AERO VODOCHODY AE-45 AND AE-145
Coinciding with the release of World Update XIV is the unveiling of Local Legend 11: the Aero Vodochody AE-45 “Aero” family.
The Ae-45 took its maiden flight in 1947. This “twin-engine, low-wing utility aircraft” was made by Czechoslovakia’s Aero Vodochody. 162 of these Ae-45s were built between 1959-1963.
The Ae-145 “features advanced flight controls, improved avionics, supercharged engines, more efficient power management systems, and a canopy offering greater visibility than that of the original Ae-45. The aircraft was ultimately used by civil and military operators in dozens of countries for passenger transport, cargo, air ambulance, flight schools, law enforcement, and other purposes.”
