ww2dbaseThe FN.305 low-wing cantilever monoplane aircraft were designed as trainers and liaison aircraft. In 1938, the Italian Air Force ordered 285 aircraft, most of which were of the FN.305A two-seat variant, with a few FN.305C and FN.305D single-seat variants. Then, 9 were sold to Chile, 31 were sold to Romania with license to build additional aircraft (124 would be built by Romania), 41 were sold to France, 1 was sold to Bulgaria, and 50 were sold to Hungary. In Mar 1939, the first FN.305D variant accomplished a record-breaking flight between Rome, Italy and Addis Ababa, Abyssinia, completing the 4,463.8-kilometer (2,773.68-mile) flight at the average speed of 240 kilometers per hour (149 miles per hour). Production of FN.305 aircraft in Italy would cease in 1943.

Famous WW2 Quote
"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."

Winston Churchill
