 Parten-P48-01
 
Luigi "Gino" Pascale and his brother Giovanni "Nino" Pascale of Naples, Italy, having been enthusiastic flying model aircraft makers, decided to work on full-scale aircraft. The first, built while the brothers were college students, was the "P.48 Astore (Goshawk)" -- a two-seat aircraft, with the seats in tandem, featuring a high strut-braced wing, fixed taildragger landing gear, and a Continental O-170 / A65 flat-four air-cooled engine with 48 kW (65 HP).
 
The Astore had two seats in tandem and was powered by a 65 hp (48 kW) Continental A65 engine.
 
The prototype and only Astore, registered I-NAPA, was built in a garage in Naples and first flew in 1952, piloted by Mario de Bernardi.
