Air Vietnam Aircraft

Officially a commercial carrier with domestic and international routes. This airline began in 1951 and flew through the end of the war.   It often shared hanger space with CASI as well as an undefined commercial relationship.

Air VN crew were civilians and many were ex-military (VNAF retirees), some were Americans. Air VN flew a variety of aircraft including DC-3s, DC-4s and Boeing 727s.  It leased one C-46 from China Airlines. This aircraft had different colors and was flown by a Chinese crew. Air VN also flew Cessna 170's on small-town routes throughout Vietnam. Maintenance was done by CASI and Air VN with some heavy engine overhaul and other maintenance done in Hong Kong and Taiwan by the Air Asia Co., Ltd. and China AIrlines.
