The SNCASO SO.7060 Deauville was a single-engine light French civil utility aircraft of the 1940s.


SNCASO had built the earlier SO.7055 Deauville which was powered by 56 kW (75 hp) Mathis 4GO or Minié 4Dc-32 engines at various times. In 1948 the design was adapted with the addition of a Walter Minor 4-III engine of 105 h.p. and a third seat was added behind the two front side-by-side seats to produce the S.O.7060 Deauville.

The aircraft was of all-metal construction with low/mid set wings and a fixed tailwheel undercarriage. The canopy was entirely transparent and slid back to permit the access of pilot and passengers. Dual controls were provided.[1]

Operational history

The sole SO.7060 F-BDVZ was flown by its makers for several years and then by an aero club based at St-Cyr-l'Ecole airfield to the west of Paris during the later 1950s and through the 1960s. The aircraft was included in the French civil aircraft register in May 1967, [2] but was no longer registered in 1973 and it has not survived in preservation.


S.O.7055 Deauville
The sole prototype two-seater powered by 56 kW (75 hp) Mathis 4GO or Minié 4Dc-32 engines at various times. First flown on 1 July 1947.

Essentially identical with the S.O.7055 but with a third seat behind the side by side front seats and powered by a 78 kW (105 hp) Walter Minor 4-III. First flown on 22 March 1948.
