The effective CAP arrangement of aerobatic flying machine goes over to the Piel CP-30 Emeraude of the early 1960s.
Claude Piel outlined the two seat Emeraude in France in the early 1960s for unit developers, yet more than 200 were inherent four separate industrial facilities crosswise over Europe. The Emeraude first flew in 1962 and was implicit essential 50kw (65hp) Continental A65 power CP-30 structure and 65kw (90hp) Continental C90 CP-301 Super Emeraude structure.
One of the organizations to assemble the Emeraude was CAARP, an organization possessed by Auguste Mudry. CAARP utilized the essential Emeraude outline as the premise for the CAP-10, which was a comparable flying machine other than its 135kw (180hp) Lycoming IO-360 motor and focusing for aerobatic flight. The model CAP-10 first flew in August 1968. CAARP manufactured 30 CAP-10s for the French flying corps before Mudry began creation for common requests in 1972 at his other flight organization, Avions Mudry.
The CAP-10 remaining parts in creation today in 10b structure with an expanded tail. The CAP-20 in the interim was a solitary seat improvement with a 150kw (200hp) AIO-360 motor.
The upgraded CAP-21 supplanted the CAP-20 in 1981. The CAP-21 joined together the fuselage of the CAP-20 with an all new wing and new undercarriage, and structures the premise for the comparable CAP-231, CAP-231ex (with a carbon fiber wing) and most recent CAP-232.
