Abstract: We consider a nondegenerate immersion $ f:{M^2} \to {\mathbb{A}^3}$ of an orientable $ 2$-dimensional manifold $ {M^2}$ together with the Blaschke connection $ \nabla $ induced on $ {M^2}$; this work is aimed at studying locally convex surfaces whose Blaschke connection is projectively flat, reducing the problem of their classification to a system of PDE's. In particular we can prove the existence of locally convex projectively flat surfaces which are not locally symmetric.
