The Morane-Saulnier M.S.234 was the designation given to three civil versions of the M.S.230 parasol wing trainer. Two were built from new as M.S.234s and were powered by a 250hp Hispano-Suiza 9Qa engine. One of these aircraft was bought for the US Ambassador to Paris. The third M.S.234 began live as a M.S.130. It was then turned into a racing aircraft, with a Hispano-Suiza 9Qb engine with NACA cowling and was usinged in the 1931 Coupe Michelin air race. In 1933 this aircraft was given a 9Qa engine and was redesignated as the M.S.234 No.2. The aircraft was used by Michel Detroyat for aerobatics displays in the United States and France from then until 1938.
