Societe des Avions Roger Druine of Paris. Roger Druine designed, built and flew his first aircraft, a simple, single-seat biplane, at the age of seventeen. His postwar, single-seat D.31 Turbulent of 1953 was a great success. These were home-built, but soon an English firm, Rollasons, built a couple of dozen production examples, including three of a certified version (D.31A) with a strengthened wing spar which permitted limited aerobatics. Later came other sport aircraft such as the 2-seater Turbi and Condor, which appeared in 1955.
