Background: At Singapore's Paya Lebar Airport, July 23, the arrival of two Czechoslovak twin-engined planes evoked considerable interest. When pressmen at the airport made enquiries, they learned that the two planes, have been bought by a Sydney, Australia, firm, and were on their way from Prague to Sydney.
Two Russian-designed light Aero-145 aircraft, have been ordered by Dulmison Aircraft Co. of Sydney. Mr. B. S. Robertson, a representative of the company, told pressmen that the Czech aircraft were economical to run and would be sold to Australian businessmen.
The Aero-145 is a four-seater plane, and has a cruising speed of 150 m.p.h. with maximum speed of 175 m.p.h.
