Pirep abbreviations

Asked by: 1880 views ,

As I was reading a pirep today, I found that the type of the aircraft giving the pirep was abbreviated as AEST. What kind of plane is that and is there a place that gives the abbreviation used for all airplanes? Thanks

    Piper Aerostar. There are several lists of ICAO abbreviations on the internet but this isn’t on most of them. Had to Google it!!!
