SNCASO (Société Nationale de Constructions Aéronautiques du Sud Ouest "National Aircraft Factory, Southwest Division") built the airplane. The aircraft was of all-metal construction with low/mid set wings and a fixed tailwheel undercarriage. The canopy was entirely transparent and slid back to permit the access of pilot and passengers. Dual controls were provided. The sole SO.7060 (Tail number F-BDVZ) was flown by its makers for several years and then by an aero club based at St-Cyr-l'Ecole airfield to the west of Paris during the later 1950's and through the 1960's. The aircraft was included in the French civil aircraft register in May 1967, but was no longer registered in 1973 and it has not been restored.
