The design of the Aero Ae 270 aircraft was started by Czech aircraft builders in the middle of the 90-ies, while the new design of the aircraft was supposed to be implemented both in the civil aviation sphere and in the military, however, without any strategic purpose, but either as a means for Transportation of high-ranking military officials, or an auxiliary means, for example, to conduct electronic warfare. Nevertheless, the aircraft was operated only as a civil aircraft, and for a very short time, because in essence, the project was declared unprofitable and finally canceled.

The plane was supposed to be used as a means of business aviation, or else as a full passenger aircraft small roominess. Over the entire period of production only a few copies were built this aircraft, which was explained by the high cost of the project and its low return on investment.

His first test lift into the air plane model Aero Ae 270, later called the Ibis Aerospace Ae270, made in late July 2000 years, at the same time the tests were found to be successful, which is why the project began to prepare for production. For the above reasons, the production in a short time has been suspended, and today we know of the existence of only two aircraft of this model.

On board the aircraft Aero Ae 270 can accommodate up to 11 people, including the crew of the aircraft, consisting of 1-2 pilots and 9 passengers, which could not be better suited for charter flights, as well as for business transportation. If necessary, the cabin of the aircraft could be equipped in accordance with the wishes of the customer, however, this led to an increase in the cost, and therefore, all issued copies of this aircraft were produced as standard in the cabin. To transport any cargo on its board, the Aero Ae 270 is actually not adapted, but considering the real cost of one aircraft, it is logical to assume that for these purposes the aircraft would not be used.
