The SOCATA TB-10 Tobago is an all-metal low-wing cabin four-seated touring aircraft. In 1975, SOCATA (Société de Construction d'Avions de Tourisme et d'Affaires) started the development of a new light aircraft to replace the ageing Ralley. A universal low-wing four-seat airframe was chosen to be the basic of a new light aircraft line. The prototype, designated SOCATA TB-10 flew first on 10 February 1977. Three development aeroplanes followed this prototype "F-WJZP". Deliveries of the production TB-10 Tobago planes, initially powered by a 180 hp Lycoming O-360-A1AD engine, started in 1979. Next to the TB-10 Tobago the airframe was the base of a family of light aircraft, starting in 1980 with the TB-9 Tampico followed later that year by the TB-20 Trinidad. Over 720 SOCATA TB-10 Tobago's were built.

On 12 June 2002, SOCATA TB-10 Tobago GT c/n 2155 was registered F-GOIA with SA EADS SOCATA, Aeroport Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees. On 16 March 2004, registration F-GOIA was cancelled as exported. On 22 March 2004, the 2002-built SOCATA TB-10 Tobago GT c/n 2155 was registered PH-MLQ in the Netherlands with Martinair Vestiging Vliegveld Lelystad BV, Lelystad. The aircraft is operated by Martiniar Vliegschool at Lelystad Airport
