I have a list of designations that have not changed on my computer for some time. I am sure there must be more types I am missing. Its very frustrating because an online search for the name CASA brings up so many Spanish property websites! Add in C.A.S.A. and many sites interpret the full stop (period) as a wild card character !!


So, something to start this list off...

Construcciones Aeronáuticas SA (CASA) was founded by José Ortiz-Echagüe in 1923 and began work on a factory in Getafe in May 1924, building Breguet aircraft under license. CASA built a second factory in Cadiz in 1926 to construct a licensed copy of the German Dornier Do. J Wal seaplane. During the Spanish Civil War the CASA Getafe factory was located in the Republican zone. It was moved to Alicante, another opened in Sabadell. At the end of the war production returned to Getafe. After the Spanish Civil War, CASA opened a new plant in Tablada in Seville.

CASA was one of the original members of the Airbus Consortium with France, Germany and the United Kingdom in 1972. From 1999 known as EADS CASA with the organisation integration into the EADS group.

(Plus pre-EADS activies in Airbus and Europlane - company formed in 1972 by British Aircraft Corporation (BAC), Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (MBB), Saab-Scania, and Construcciones Aeronáuticas SA (CASA) to build the quiet take-off and landing (QTOL) airliner )

CASA C-201 Alcotán [1946] Developed from a design started by Instituto Nacional de Tecnica Aerospacial Esteban Terradas as the INTA-20 design. A low-wing 10 passenger aircraft. Fitted with two 450 hp radail engines for use as a military transport and navigational trainer. The idea was to use Spanish engines. The CASA continuation of the project led to a tail wheel design with the option of two Armstrong-Siddeley Cheetah or Elizalde (later ENMASA) Sirio S-VII-A engines.

As a person mainly specialized in American aircraft, and then Japanese, Soviet and British aircraft (all of which represents quite a lot already!), I am highly admirative of the fact that you have lists for so many different manufacturers and countries, Cy-27... A tip of the hat to you! :)

Very great work my dear Cy-27;


CASA I & II were a parasol wing tandem two seat touring monoplanes.
CASA IV & V were also a parasol wing tandem two seat touring monoplanes.
CASA AX.2 developed from AX.
CASA-2000 modern light transport aircraft project (not sure about it).
CASA AAC-90 and AAC-120 projected as a twin-jet regional transport aircraft,associated
with Aeritalia and Aerospatiale;

CASA (Breguet) Br.19 [1925] Built under licence as the Bidón.
Four were brought from France, then 203 were made by CASA:
- 26 assembled from imported parts (one with Hispano 12 Hb and 25 with Lorraine 12 Eb engine)
- 177 entirely made in Spain (27 with imported Hispano 12 Hb, 150 with Elizalde A-4, a license-built Lorraine)
Three special raid aircraft were built (those were the Bidón):
- two Br.19 TR Bidón n°71 and n°72 ("Jesús del Gran Poder")
- one Br.19 TF Super Bidón ("Cuatro Vientos")
It's not clear if those were included in the total of 203 examples.

Cy-27 said:
CASA (Breguet) Br.26T Built under licence.
Two examples made by CASA.

Cy-27 said:
CASA (Dornier) Do.J Wal [1925] Built under licence
There was also one CASA (Dornier) Do.R Super Wal, christened "Numancia", the first aircraft built by CASA built by CASA's seaplane factory in Cádiz.
After that, a total of 27 Do.J Wal were built according to http://www.airbusmilitary.com/Company/CompanyHistory02.aspx
(Other sources give slightly different numbers.)

CASA I [1929] Built the first aeroplane designed exclusively by CASA, the CASA I.

CASA III [1929] A tandem sporting parasol monoplane with de Havilland Gipsy III engine. Designed by Luis Bousa Perco, it had its maiden flight on 2 July 1929, around 9 completed, all with different engines. See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CASA_III

CASA 1933 Project Single engine high wing braced touring monoplane built at Getafe in 1933. Designed by Jose Aguilera by CASA-Sousa.

The designer of the CASA III was Luis Sousa Peco. (There was a mistake in the Wikipedia entry.) I've never heard of the CASA I or CASA 1933 model, and I'd be interested to know the source. José Aguilera Cullel was main engineer at the CASA works. All references to a plane designed by Sousa and Aguilera seem to correspond to the CASA III.

hesham said:
CASA I & II were a parasol wing tandem two seat touring monoplanes.
CASA IV & V were also a parasol wing tandem two seat touring monoplanes.
Same remark Hesham, I'd like to know the source for the CASA I, II, IV, V.

The history page by Airbus Military says that "the company started working, in 1928, on the development of its own first light-plane prototype called the “CASA-III”, as it was the third of a series of concepts, with the others having been discarded."
http://www.airbusmilitary.com/Company/CompanyHistory02.aspx
This might imply that there were CASA I & II unbuilt projects, but it does not say anything of their characteristics.

Interesting picture, where does it come from?
But I can't see the difference with the CASA III designed by Sousa, like in the picture below.

Pictures and information on the CASA III:
http://www.aviationcorner.net/gallery_en.asp?aircraft_type=CASA%20III
Juan Gonzalez says that there were two projects CASA T-1 and T-2, and one prototype of the T-1 was built as CASA I. Then up to 9 CASA III were built.

I displayed before a project to CASA
from 1933,and according to your source,may be it was CASA VII (1933);
The wooden model is definitely the CASA III. The picture appears in Aeroplano no.22, in an interview of José Aguilera Cullel. The text gives no doubt that "Casa-Sousa" means "aircraft designed by Sousa and built by CASA". In the interview, Aguilera says that about a dozen were made.

The CASA X was a cabin version of the CASA III. One prototype was almost completed but construction was halted at the outbreak of the Civil War.
