Morane-Saulnier MS.570

MS.570

National origin: France
Manufacturer: Morane-Saulnier
First flight: 19 December 1945
Number built: 10

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.

While the MS.570 had only two seats, it was followed by MS.571 that added an extra seat to the rear of the cockpit (optionally, a small bench seat), and the dedicated four-seater MS.572.
