The Fiat G.49 was an Italian two-seat basic trainer designed by Giuseppe Gabrielli and built by Fiat.

Design and development

The G.49 was designed as a replacement for the World War II-era US North American T-6 advanced trainer by Gabrielli and was first flown in September 1952. The G.49 was an all-metal low-wing cantilever monoplane with retracting tailwheel landing gear. It had an enclosed cockpit with raised canopy for a pupil and instructor in tandem. Two variants were built with different engine installations; the G.49-1 with an Alvis Leonides radial engine and the G.49-2 with a Pratt & Whitney radial engine.
