|Role||Two-seat aerobatic tourer or trainer|
Designed originally as a two-seat light aerobatic trainer the G.5 was a low-wing cantilever monoplane powered by a 135 hp (101 kW) Fiat A.70 radial piston engines. It had a fixed tailwheel landing gear and tandem open cockpits for the instructor and pupil.
The type was built in small numbers and was followed by a prototype G.5/2 with an inverted inline 140 hp (104 kW) Fiat A.60. A small number was also built of the final variant G.5bis which was fitted with a higher output 200 hp (149 kW) Fiat A.70 engine.
Later history and operations
Some aircraft were later modified to single-seat configuration. One example of the G.5bis, registered I-BFFI, survived in civil ownership and operation until at least 1955 and is now preserved in a museum.
