After the end of sugar production in the Vysočany sugar factory the place transformed itself into something like a fruitful designer center. Avie began here with airplane production, J.F. Koch designed his motorcycles and it was here where allegedly a car should have been born which eventually turned out to be a predecessor of a very popular car, namely Aero 30. According to one source its author was a smith from ČKD, Mr. Kolínský who built it here in a provisional garage. And it was here where he should have met Josef Bašek, who contributed with his designers knowledge and by furnishing the drawing documentation. (According to other sources Josef Bašek brought to the workshop of his brother in law, Mr. Vilímek, a complete design of the new car and Mr. Kolínský should have participated in the design "only" as a mechanician). But end 1933 both together presented the finished prototype to Dr Kabeš from the airplane factory Aero. The car was providently prepared for production and in 1934 was presented at the autosalon. In this way the car factory Aero became the third and at the same time the last of our firms, which turned to the front wheel drive, whose advantages contributed to the quality of the Aero 30 and consequently to the liking among the motorists. Part of the success has also to be ascribed to the very elegant body, the final appearance of which was due to Mr. Voříšek. The young management of the factory favourised progressive features of the car design, but the choice of the two stroke motor showed that it also made use of the considerable experience gained in the production of "half liters". Due to the excellent and progressive design of this car Mr. J.Bašek became Director of the automobile section of the firm Aero.


 


The car Aero 30 was driven by the reliable two stroke water cooled in-line twin engine with the capacity of 998 ccm. The cylinder bore was -the same as in the case of the first single-cylinders- 85 mm and the stroke 88 mm. By this duplication the power output rose to 28 HP. In serial production gravity water cooling (without pump) was used. There was coil ignition and electric installation of 6 V. The basic type had a three- speed gear box with a reverse gear, but some four speed gear boxes (around 25) were fabricated as well. The last types of Aero 30 had already a synchronized gear box. The front axle was a swinging one, spring mounted on transverse half-elliptical leaf springs and had already rack-and-pinion steering. The rear swinging half-axle was spring mounted on two parallell transverse leaf springs. The cars were fabricated with a wheel base either 2515 mm in open cars or with this value increased by 200 mm in limousines. The weight of the car varied between 850 kg for open cars, 950 kg for limousines and 930 kg for convertibles. In one of the first versions the Aero 30 was a five-seater with three seats in front and two in the rear. In the year of its appearance on the market its price was 23 500 Kč for the open type and 25 800 Kč for the type with the closed body.
