.: RS Models >> A.V.I.A. Fl 3
The A.V.I.A company was created in 1938 by F. Lombardi, a well known pilot of the times. A.V.I.A. was based in Vercelli in north Italy and it ws decided to develop a twin seat light training-touring aircraft. The prototype first flew in 1938, powered by a Czech 45hp Persy II engine and the new plane fulfilled the specifications issued by the Italian Air Ministry for a low cost aircraft to be used in Italian Aero Clubs. Series production began shoirtly afterwards but using the new 60hp CNA D/IVS engine. The Air Ministry then selected the aircraft (now know as the FL 3) as an "ab inito" trainer for the Ragia Aeronautica. In all 355 FL 3 were built of which 20 were ordered by the Croatian Air Force. During the WWII the German seized 250 FL 3 and used them as training and comunications aircraft. After War flew also in Switzerland, Italian Aero Clubs and one also in Czechoslovakia.
