Not the Belgium SABCA S-40 I am afraid. It was European though. Logging off will be on in the morning.

cringe. Well done. I thought if evansb didn't get it you would.
It is indeed the Caproni Ca.100
From a report on the Gianni Caproni Aircraft Museum:-
"The aeroplane, born in 1928 as an easy-to-drive aircraft with low fuel consumption, the "Caproncino" was widely used in flight schools until 1968. This aircraft integrates and widens the historical aeronautical collection on display in the precious permanent collection of the Caproni Museum: alongside the seaplane version of the Ca.100 model, is the land version belonging to the Historical Museum of Italian Military Aeronautics' collection. As well as the legendary aircraft freshly restored, its flying replica is on display made by the Professional Education Centre "G. Veronesi" of Rovereto on commission by an enthusiast benefactor from Trentino."
Here is a photograph of a Caproni Ca.100, captured by No.112 Sq at Agnone, August 1943, Caproni Ca.100 I-GUAS, one of five such trainers previously used by the Catania Aero Club, Sicily, of which three went to No. 112 Sq RAF, and one each to No. 3 and No. 450 Sq RAAF. It was flown at Agnone, August-September 1943 and was used for taking maintenance personnel on joy rides.

You have control.

evansb,

Eastern European, yes. I couldn't find the production numbers on the net so I'm only aware of a prototype that first flew in the late 1980s. Another aircraft with a different engine type is (or was) planned.
