CARMAM M-200 Foehn
CVT M200
 
Carm-M200
 
Designed by Alberto and Piero Morelli, the M-200 is a two-seater high performance version of their Standard Class M-100S which was built under licence both in Italy and by CARMAM at Moulins-Avernes as the M-100S Mesange (Tomtit). The prototype M-200 was built under contract for the Aero Club of Italy by the CVT (Centra di Volo a Vela del Politecnico di Torino) at Turin, and made its first flight in May 1964.

Production was undertaken under an exclusive licence by CARMAM, who built it as the M-200 Foehn, completing one more prototype and five pre-production aircraft before starting the definitive production batch. Main differencebetween the M-200 and the M-100S is the former's widened fuselage to accommodate two staggered side-by-side seats, the one-piece canopy opening sideways to port; this seating arrangement obviates the need for ballast when the aircraft is flown solo, and gives good visibility to both pilots. The M-200 is designed to be easy to fly for first solos and, like the M-100S, is fully aerobatic; it is also suitable for flying in cloud. Wing span of the M-200 has been increased from the 15m of the M-100S to 18.15m (59ft 6.5 in) and it is slightly longer; the wing structure is very similar to that of the M-100S, with a leading edge torsion box and air brakes consisting of four instead of three pairs of light alloy rotating plates above and below each wing. The fuselage is of plywood construction with frames and stringers and the landing gear consists of a non-retractable monowheel with a drum brake and a rubber-sprung nose-skid; there is also a tailskid.
