Caproni - Società Italiana Caproni
/ Caproni Ca.114
The Caproni Ca.114 was a fighter biplane produced in Italy in the early 1930s which was flown operationally in Peru in the 1930s and 1940s.
After official trials, the Regia Aeronautica rejected the Ca.114 in favour of the Fiat CR.32.
Caproni found a buyer in the Peruvian Aviation Corps, which ordered 12 examples in April 1934.
