The two-seater jet trainer HA 200, which took the place of the HA 100 series, took off for the first time on August 12, 1955. The HA 200 was the fourth jet airplane project by Willy Messerschmitt and Spain's first jet. The construction license went to Egypt.


The HA 200, nicknamed el "Saeta" (Arrow) by the Spanish Air Force and "Al Qahira" (the victorious) by the Egyptian Air Force, was a tandem two-seater, low wing monoplane powered by two French built Turbomeca Marboré IIA turbojets of 400 kilograms (880 pounds) thrust each. The engines are independently mounted and exhaust through tailpipes on either side of the fuselage. Aircraft construction is conventional with a semi-monocoque fuselage and cantilever wing and tail structure. The two-seat cockpit for instructor and student is pressurized.
