PS Aero, Baarlo
Latest update: December 2022
Piet Smedts Aero (PS Aero) is a former car dealer who had an interest in aviation. He turned his hobby into work and decided to stop with his dealership and completely focus on trading in former, mostly, military aircraft.

At his premises in Baarlo (address: Napoleonsbaan zuid 27c, 5991 NB Baarlo) several military and a few civilian registered aircraft are preserved. The collection can vary as aircraft are sold or preserved at other locations. The company also offers its aircraft, helicopters for movies.

A tour can be booked by visiting the PS, Aero website. The tour starts with a movie about PS Aero and then continues with a visit to the hangars and outside location where the aircraft are put on display.

The below report covers the aircraft photographed on July 6, 2022. It's not uncommon for aviation museums or locations where aircraft are preserved to change the serials. The same applies to PS Aero. The table contains the displayed serial as worn on the aircraft during the visit.

The remarks have been updated in December 2002. However, the table will not be maintained. At the Scramble website their Baarlo & Kessel collection topic can be visited.

Civilian registrered aircraft are not included in the report.
