The EADS Socata Rallye was a light aircraft manufactured in France during the 1960s, originally by Morane-Saulnier as the MS.880. The Rallye is a single engine, low wing monoplane of all metal construction, fitted with a fixed undercarriage. Power was from one of a range of progressively more powerful air cooled engines, ranging from a 100 hp (75 kW) Continental O-200 engine in the Rallye Club, to a 235 hp (175 kW) Lycoming O-540 in the Rallye 235. It has a bulbous cockpit which houses two people in the basic lower-powered variants and four in the more powerful aircraft, some of which are designed to be used as glider tugs.In 1958, Morane-Saulnier designed a single engine light aircraft, the MS.880 Rallye Club,in response to a French government competition. In 1979, Socata renamed the Rallye series, with each model getting an individual, "more Gallic" name.
