The Morane-Saulnier MS.129 and its derivatives in the MS.130 series were a family of military trainer aircraft produced in France in the 1920s. They were conventional, parasol-wing monoplanes with open cockpits in tandem and fixed tailskid undercarriage. The initial version, the MS.129, was produced in small numbers for the Romanian Air Force and civil users, but the major production version was the MS.130, which equipped the French Navy and a number of foreign air arms.

The second MS.130 prototype was flown to victory by Michel Detroyat in the 1929 Coupe Michelin, with an average speed of 190 km/h (120 mph).

The MS.130 was further developed as the MS.230, and at least two MS.130s were later rebuilt to this new standard.
