In 1944, the Soci?t? nationale des constructions aeronautiques du Sud-Est (SNCASE) began work on the project of a light two-seat aircraft SE.2100. The project was led by designer Pierre Satre? the future chief designer of the supersonic airliner A?rospatiale/BAC Concorde. October 4, 1945 - the first flight of the light aircraft SNCASE SE-2100 (aka Sud-Est SE-2100).

The SE.2100 was an all-metal low-wing tailless plane with a swept (55?) wing and a non-retractable landing gear. The Renault 4Pei engine (190 hp) rotated the pusher screw. Cruising speed ? 198 km / h. Flight range - 500 km.

In fact, the SE.2100 was an experimental aircraft for testing the "tailless" scheme. It was built in a single copy and was not planned to be put into mass production. After its first flight under the control of pilot Pierre Cadot, the SE.2100 was tested for several more years. After 1952, his traces are lost.
