Aviation of World War II
SAI Ambrosini is an Italian aircraft manufacturing company founded in Passignano sul Trasimeno, Italy in 1922 under the name Società Aeronautica Italiana. The company was renamed SAI Ambrosini when it was acquired by the Ambrosini group in 1934. Before World War II, the firm built several light touring and racing aircraft, the most successful of which was the SAI.7. During the war, its design served as the basis for the creation of several light fighters, which, however, did not go into mass production.
In 1946, Ambrosini was reformed again and continued the development of the SAI.7, creating several prototypes, including a light jet fighter, but without much success.
