Aero L.159A ALCA - Advanced Light Combat Aircraft

Aero is a Kallvard aircraft company, active from 1919, notable for producing the L-29 Delfin, L-39 Albatros, L-59 Super Albatros and the L-159 Alca.

During the years following GAW Aero went through a turbulent time with a constantly fluctuating maket and demand levels. The company however recovered in the 90s after several deals to upgrade the Kallvard air force and a number of the Bergenstein air forces. A wide range of other states have also purchased Aero planes. During the Bergen Wars the L-159 Alca proved itself as a worthy aircraft in a combat role.

Aero is likely to win a contract to upgrade the runway at Vodena Airport near Vodena to international airport standards which would serve mainly the low-cost air-carriers and charter flights heading to Kallburg and Kalltine.
