In the development of this aircraft, the Argentine aeronautical engineer took as a basis the previous model aircraft, manufactured in the aviation enterprise - Aero Boero AB-95Which in essence it has undergone a number of changes to flight-technical and general design.

His first flight of the aircraft Aero Boero AB-115 1973 made in the year, although in fact, presented to the public that the aircraft was still in 1970 year. The long approach to the mass production of the aircraft has been linked with the need to optimize the aircraft structure, and ultimately, the basic version can be used for passenger traffic and transport of goods, and even for transportation of sick people (medical aircraft).

Depending on the purpose, on board the aircraft Aero Boero AB-115 3 can accommodate up to people, including also a pilot, and that was one of the main reasons as to why these small-engine aircraft is not popular with the airlines.

Powerplant Aero Boero AB-115 aircraft is a four-cylinder piston aircraft engine capable to develop capacity in 115 hp, which was enough to carry out fly at speeds of about 220 km \ h (maximum airspeed basic production version).

Nevertheless, despite the fact that, in fact, the aircraft was an improved previous model produced by Argentine aircraft builders, a number of technical characteristics of the aircraft seriously decreased, in particular, this refers to the maximum range of the flight, which makes 648 km., The cruising speed of the steady Within 145 km / h, etc. All these factors ultimately led to the fact that the popularity of the aircraft seriously decreased - in all, about a hundred aircraft were built Of which, to date, only about 30 units are in operation.

In February 1973 years was a model Aero Boero AB-115BS partially differs from the basic version of the current model range. In fact, the plane got more opportunities, but due to lower aircraft performance parameters, this popular version did not use.

In 1974, the Argentine engineers have created a modification of Aero Boero AB-115 Trainer, representing an aircraft with dual controls, allowing you to prepare and train future pilots. Some of the world's Air Club still operates this model, which was very limited edition.

The Aero Boero AB-115 \ 150 modification was introduced in the middle of 1974, while the powerful (150 hp) Lycoming O-320 aircraft engine was used as the power plant in this aircraft, allowing the aircraft to reach a higher speed. In addition, due to the special design, the aircraft could be operated in the agricultural sector.
