FMA AeT.1

FMA AeT.1

The FMA AeT.1 was an airliner built in Argentina in the early 1930s. It was a low-wing cantilever monoplane of conventional design, with fixed tailwheel undercarriage. Only three examples were built, christened General San Martín, Deán Funes, and Jorge Newbery. These aircraft provided Argentina's first scheduled airline services with Aero-Argentina, flying between Córdoba and Buenos Aires. The Deán Funes was also used to make a long-distance flight to Ushuaia, bringing the first mail to that town after a flight of 6,500 km (4,060 miles). Air France director Colin Jeannel flew as a passenger on that flight.
