The Caudron C.60 was a French two-seat biplane of the 1920s and 1930s with a single engine and a canvas-covered fuselage. The French aircraft manufacturer Caudron developed this aircraft from the Caudron C.59. It was mainly used as a trainer aircraft.
The Finnish Air Force purchased 30 Caudron C.60s from France in 1923. A further 34 aircraft were license-built in Finland between 1927-1928. The Finnish Air Force had a total of 64 64 Caudron C.60s. The French-manufactured aircraft carried the codes 1E20 - 1E30 and 1F31 - 1F49, and later CA-20 - CA-9. The Finnish-manufactured ones carried the codes CA-61 - CA-94.
The aircraft was in use between 1923-1936.
