Why thank you, this one I've checked, has not been here before. Apologies for the grainy picture.

Green panel, AH with built-in slip ball, ignition switch reminiscent of a Yak 52, what looks like the famous "Mig clock" top right and the very tall stick makes me think Russian trainer. However, I can't find one with a side-hinged canopy.

You are going in the right direction... at least from geographical point of view.

Hint: this wasn't designed by any of the traditional soviet design bureaus, hence no military trainer.

Hint: an aerobatics trainer by design, design by students at an aviation university in Moscow.

The French made me think Wassmer, but now I'm going to suggest it is the Cerva CE43 Guepard.

Open house I'm afraid if correct, nothing to hand ATM.

Not the Cerva CE43, the French is a clue. Only 55,700FF brand-new circa 50 years ago...


the view looking forward...

The small triangular pieces of cockpit and the control handle shapes appear to match the Wassmer 40/41?
But BSD has already mentioned this.

Noyade, you have it with the Wassmer W.41 Baladou, a great big comfortable barge of a thing...


Whilst BSD did mention Wassmer, they talked themselves out of it opting for the related but later Cerva, thus Noyade has control.

Cheers ASW.
One thing that threw me looking at silhouettes and photos of the Wassmer is I couldn't locate those two small 'windows' you see on the top right of your first photo.
Were they standard?

Of course credit all round. I think your “small Windows” are an optical illusion caused by the framing of the picture with the canopy fully open. I see them as the top corner of the side transparencies.

Thanks ASW.

The cockpit belongs to delta wing jet. First flight was in 1954.
