The Fiat G.5 was an Italian two-seat aerobatic tourer or trainer designed and built by Fiat Aviazione in small numbers.

Development

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 had a larger output 200 hp (149 kW) Fiat A.70 engine. Some aircraft were later modified to single-seat configuration.
