The Morane-Saulnier MS.570 was a civil utility aircraft produced in small numbers in France in the late 1940s. It was a derivative of the MS.560 aerobatics aircraft with a revised fuselage design that added a second seat side-by-side with the pilot's and a more powerful engine.
Like its predecessor, the MS.570 was a low-wing cantilever monoplane with retractable tricycle undercarriage. Construction was of metal throughout, with the fuselage having a semi-monocoque structure. The cockpit was enclosed by an expansive bubble canopy that slid rearwards to provide access. The wings could be folded for storage.
