That Aero 145 has supercharged engines and the service ceiling is more about 19,000 ft. It is also aerobatic and there are stories of it being demonstrated in the UK in the 1950s' by a Czech demo pilot doing climbing rolls with one engine feathered. An interesting feature is that the props are variable rather than constant speed and are controlled electrically.
