The I-115 was an 1950s elementary trainer built by AISA to replace the Bückers (Bu 131 and CASA 1131) in the EdA (Spanish AF). Of wooden construction and powered with the local 150 hp ENMASA Tigre G-IVB, the I-115 was an honest flyer, but without the teaching qualities or the livery behaviour of the Bücker. The Garrapata (Tick), so called because of its tendency to stick to the runway during take offs, had a honorable if colourless military service. Later a lot enjoyed a pleasant civilian live.
