SIAI-Marchetti S.205
Waco Vela II
Waco Taurus


A four seat development of the SA.202 Bravo, design of the S.205 four-seat all-metal light monoplane was started in March 1964 and by April of the following year three examples had been completed. Each had a 134kW Lycoming engine fitted, but a wide range of versions subsequently became available with different engines and equipment.

The S205/22R was never a trainer. It was the retractable version of the 205 with a franklin engine. We also had a 205R which was the same airplane with a Lycoming. The left door was a factory option.

Waco Aircraft Co [2] was founded in 1966 to build Savoia-Marchetti S.205 (as Waco Vela II and Sirius) plus turbosupercharged Taurus derivative.
