Castel
 
Since 1936 the French firm of Etablissements Fouga et Cie operated an Aircraft Department which built aircraft to the designs of its Director, Pierre Mauboussin, and the Technical Director, Robert Castello, as Castel-Mauboussin or just Castel and later as Fouga designs. These included a number of sailplanes culminating in the postwar CM 10 military glider which could carry up to 35 fully armed troops or two jeeps, and the V-tailed CM 8R-13 and CM 8R-
 
15 Sylphe each powered by a dorsally-mounted Turbomeca Pimene jet for flight testing and research; the two latter types led directly to the Fouga CM 170R Magister jet trainer.
