From Ailes 3/1950,

We know Indraéro Aero-20 & Aero-30 light aircraft,but always I ask myself,what was the
beginning,and Mr. Jean Chapeau which formed Societe Indraéro in early 1950s,he designed
with Mr. Blanchet Aero-10 & Aero-11,a tandem two-seat light trainer and touring biplane.

Also he created Aero-20 and Aero-30 a Projects as I guess,because the actually built was
anther aircraft,all details are here.

It would appear that the Scintex ML-145 is not alone, from amongst the aeroplanes featured in this thread, in having been actually built and flown. If Pierre Gaillard (Les Avions Français de 1944 à 1964) is accepted as authority, the following were both built and flown (the dates in parentheses being that given by him generally as that of their first flights):

Holleville Bambi (27.7.53)
Petitbon RP.40 (1.9.53)
Poullin JP.30 (15.8.52)
Mangin MRC.1 (9.51)
Krueger EK.51 (29.5.50)
Micro-Aviation RG.501 (1949)
Grenet G.47 (1948)
Fleury RF.10 (9.48)
Paumier MP.1 (1948)
Bassou Sport (1948)
Chapeau et Blanchet Lévrier (1946)
Williams X-28 (1947)
Lavoisier LP.24 (1946)

I accept that it cannot be proved, categorically, that all of the foregoing flew. But all were constructed (hence the photographs) and those that didn't fly were, at least, completed and many underwent ground testing. Such is evident from the text of the articles and news reports, in Les Ailes, which accompanied the photographs taken therefrom which have been posted on this thread. Perhaps it would be preferable to post the photographs in the context of those articles and news reports, translated into English, and material concerning the aeroplanes that appears in Pierre Gaillard's book and other books which record the largely amateur built aeroplanes of this period?

I don’t see a problem with including built prototypes/one-offs in this or other project threads.

From Ailes 3/9/1955,

here is a ultra-light tandem wing aircraft Project,designed by Daniel Robert Bancharelle,his concept looks like G. C. Richard,
and by the way he was a well known pilot.

Nor do I, but I do think that it would be helpful, in text accompanying a post, to distinguish between (a) projects which existed only on paper and (b) prototypes and 'one-offs' which actually were built and flown.
