The Viberti Musca 1 is a 1940s Italian two-seat civil touring monoplane produced by Ali Verberti SpA of Turin.

Contents

The Musca 1 was a cantilever low-wing monoplane powered by a 85 hp (63 kW) Continental C85 flat-four piston engine. Named for the chief designer Franco Muscariello it had an enclosed side-by-side seating and a fixed conventional landing gear. The Musca 1 started production in 1948 and in 1951 the Musca 1bis was introduced with structural improvements. The company had two further variants planned but the company was dissolved around 1951. Muscareillo continued development of the Musca 1, however, flying a modified version, the Musca 1 Ter powered by a Walter Micron on 15 September 1952.
