Société Industrielle Pour l’Aéronautique
Société Industrielle Pour l’Aéronautique (SIPA) was a French aircraft manufacturer established in 1938 by Émile Dewoitine after his previous company, Avions Dewoitine, was nationalized the year before. From 1938-1940, SIPA principally manufactured parts for other French aircraft companies. After World War II, it began developing a series of trainers for the French Air Force.
In 1947, SIPA won a competition for a new two-seat touring and trainer aircraft for France's aero clubs and 113 were produced as the SIPA S.90 series. The SIPA S.1000 Coccinelle was built in small numbers in 1956/57.
Its SIPA S.200 Minijet, first flown in 1952, was the world's first all-metal two-seat light jet.
SIPA was taken over by Aérospatiale in 1975.
