Arsenal Air SA 103 Emouchet / Air SA 104
 
In the same category as the Grunau Baby, the SA 103 Emouchet (or Kestrel) single-seat elementary training glider and the very similar SA 104 was designed and built just after the war by Arsenal de I'Aeronautique and went into large-scale production at Chatillon-sous-Bagneux for the French National Gliding Centres and clubs; some were also built by Societe Roche-Aviation.
Of conventional wood and fabric construction, the Emouchet has a parasol wing with metal bracing struts and no air brakes or spoilers. The cockpit is an open one and landing gear consists of a landing skid under the forward fuselage and a tail bumper fairing. The fuselage itself is of hexagonal cross-section and the tailplane is set forward of the diminutive fin and large rudder.
