The development and subsequent design of this model was based on the aircraft Aero Boero AB-180, which appeared in 1969, however, despite the increased passenger capacity of the aircraft, a more powerful power plant and more efficient flight performance, the aircraft was never able to achieve the desired success, which is why only two aircraft were built for all the time.

The basic principle by which Argentine aviation engineers created the Aero Boero AB-210 model was the need to increase the maximum passenger capacity of light-engine aircraft, due to which, due to the increased length of the fuselage and the more constrained interior space, the aircraft could accommodate up to 4 people, One pilot. However, due to the relatively short distance (the maximum range of the flight is 800 km.), The aircraft could not be operated by either local or foreign air carriers, which in fact became the reason why this aircraft so quickly disappeared from production.

The power plant of the Aero Boero AB-210 is represented by one Continental IO-360 six-cylinder air-cooled piston aircraft engine with a capacity of 210 hp, however, for a number of reasons, the maximum flight speed of this aircraft did not exceed 240 km / h, which made flights at maximum distances following are quite problematic, moreover, the cost of this model increased significantly, while the efficiency was only slightly higher than that of the Aero Boero AB-180 version.

After the Argentine aircraft manufacturers have seen the low efficiency of the power plant, attempts were made to create a more powerful aircraft, which is why in 1971 year was a model Aero Boero AB-260, which is essentially no different from the basic version, with the exception of a new aircraft engine - Lycoming O-540 260 capacity hp However, updating flight performance of the aircraft did not lead to the proper success, which is why the model was never put into serial production.

To date, both issued by the aircraft Aero Boero AB-210 and Aero Boero AB-260 belonging to the same model range continues to operate - Model Aero Boero AB-210 is in operation at the local Argentine flag carrier, and a version of Aero Boero AB-260 belongs to a private owner .
