Hi all,

I search for drawings and infos about the french light aircraft project SCAN 40 "Scanton". This was one competitor with the Roussel 40 and SUC.10 "Courlis".

Dear Maveric

You can find some info and pics on wikipedia and on www.aviafrance.com. For the drawing you must find the french magazine Le Trait D'Union N° 123 ( I have it but I lack the scanner) there is the complete history about SCAN Factory and this fliying boat.

SCAN 40 isn't mentioned on Wikipedia or www.aviafrance.com. Anyone have pics or specs of the SCAN 40? (Bear in mind that S.C.A.N. stood for Société de construction aéronavale.)

From my files, the Roussel 40 Hirondelle (swallow) was not a competitor to the SCAN 40, but a rename of it after SCAN gave up. It never flew.

Additional tidbit: the reason for SCAN giving up on the 40 project in 1948 was probably because SCAN's managing director, himself a pilot, died when he flew his SCAN-30 into a mountain.
