The Rallye is a single engined, 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 Continental O-200 engine in the Rallye Club, to a 235 hp Lycoming O-540 in the Rallye 235. It has a bulbous cockpit which houses two people in the basic low powered variants and four in the more powerful aircraft, some of which are designed to be used as glider tugs.
