The AS/SA 202 Bravo is a two-seat civil light aircraft jointly designed and manufactured by the Swiss company FFA and the Italian company Savoia-Marchetti. The aircraft was designated the AS 202 in Switzerland, and the SA 202 in Italy.

Savoia-Marchetti manufactured the wings, undercarriage and engine installation, while FFA manufactured the fuselage, tail and controls, while both companies had assembly plants manufacturing the complete aircraft.

The first Swiss model flew on 9 March 1969, the first Italian aircraft following on 8 May.

Bravo is a rugged all-metal low-wing monoplane with a full vision canopy. Its tricycle landing gear is fixed.

34 15s and 180 18s were built, with most in service with military customers. The biggest civil operator is Patria Pilot Training at Helsinki-Malmi Airport, Finland.
