The Indraéro Aéro 101 was a light training biplane developed in France in the 1950s.
Design and service
It was a conventional design with single-bay staggered wings braced with an I-strut, and fixed tailskid undercarriage with divided main units. The pilot and instructor sat in tandem, open cockpits. A small batch of aircraft were ordered by SALS for aeroclub use.
The prototype, known as the Aéro 110, differing from the later production Aero 101s by having a welded steel tube fuselage and a 34 kW (45 hp) Salmson 9ADb radial engine, first flew on 1 May 1950
Three examples of the type were current on the French Civil Aircraft Register in 2009, including an Aero 101C and two Aero 101s.
