The tiny Turbulent is a French design (by Roger Druine) and was meant to be the lightest aicraft possible powered by a 45hp Ardem Mk IV VW engine. It has some superficial resemblance to the Jodel D9 Bebe, without, of course, the characteristic polyhedral wings of the Jodel.
Factory-built versions of this pretty little single seater were available from Rollason in the UK and Stark Flugzeugbau in Germany; many others were built from plans.
