AISA I-115 “Garrapata”: A tick will always be a tick

The I-115 was a 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 and latter were transferred to civilian live.
