The Nord 2100 Norazur was a 1940s French civil transport monoplane designed and built at Courbevoie near Paris by SNCAN.

Design and development

The Norazur was a high-wing cantilever monoplane with a retractable tricycle landing gear. Powered by two wing-mounted Potez piston engines in pusher configuration. It had an enclosed cabin for ten passengers or freight.

Designed to meet a post-war requirement for a light transport and training aircraft the Norazur first flew at Les Moreuax on 30 April 1947. An additional prototype with 390hp Bearn 6D-07 engines is believed to have been built. With other similar designs available the type did not enter production.
