Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Praga E.114 was a single-engine sport airplane, designed and manufactured by the Czechoslovakian company ČKD-Praga. Due to its light weight it was also called Air Baby. It was designed by Jaroslav Šlechta as a high-wing monoplane. The prototype OK-PGA flew for the first time in September 1934 and the aircraft was introduced to the public at the Paris aero salon at the same year. Series production started in 1935 with an aircraft equipped with a 29 kW Praga B engine. One year later appeared the higher performing version E.115, which was equipped with 44 kW Praga D engine and an enclosed cabin. Many national records were broken with this aircraft. Two E.114s participated in the Sternflug to the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin. The two E.114 pilots, Fuksa and Polma, took the first two places, winning over competitors, equipped with aircraft with stronger engines.
