The Smithsonian lists Ardea as the PB-3 manufacturer. So, if Letadla Prikryl-Blecha = Prikryl-Blecha Aircraft, what was Ardea (located at Praha-Vinohrady)? Since the latter is the genus for herons it pops up a lot in searches but no Czechoslovak glider manufacturer :p

Does anyone have more on the Přikryl-Blecha PBL-3 biplane trainer? Hesham's article says it had a [7-cyl Walter] Venus engine of 90 kW. If I understand correctly, the PBL-3 was aimed at the Yugoslav market but Přikryl and Blecha's Belgrade agent had greatly inflated the price and the deal collapsed.

There is also mention of the Czechoslovak air training organization MLL (Masarykova letecká liga) subsidizing a light sport plane powered by a French Vaslin motor of 9 kW (12 hp). This design was begun around 1929. Was the lightplane actually built?
