Avions Légers Multi-Services Calao

10/31/2010. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "The Avions Légers Multi-Services (ALMS) was formed at the Aérodrome de La Ferté-Alais in 2001 to build a cost-effective, robust and safe aftermarket ultra-light aircraft, and the company's first product was the Calao. Although bearing more than a passing resemblance to a Piper Cub, the Calao was based on the Zlín Savage, for which the company was the French agent.

The aircraft was optimized for aerial applications, including spraying (pictured here), photography, surveillance and express transport. The registration of ultra-lights in France has been transferred to the Departments hence the unusual registration 91XZ, the marking 266 on the fuselage was the Paris Air Show catalog number. The aircraft has briefly been registered as F-JPMO."
