The Morane-Saulnier M.S.36 was a single-seat parasol wing advanced trainer that was ordered into production in 1917, but cancelled at the end of the First World War. Morane-Saulnier had already designed one successful trainer, the two-seat M.S.35 intermediate trainer, which first appeared in 1915. The M.S.36 was smaller and slightly slower than the M.S.35. It was powered by a cowled Le Rhône 9C rotary engine, had a larger tail, and was an early example of a Morane-Saulnier design with both swept back wings and ailerons in place of the standard wing warping controls of the period. The M.S.36 made its maiden flight in 1917 and was ordered into production. A number of aircraft were completed before production was cancelled at the of the First World War, and at least four went onto the French civil register.
