Conventional appearance, was designed to replace the previous Ca. 100, from which it differed to a strengthened and for the adoption of an engine from the higher power. Was characterised by a fuselage with two cockpits in tandem, stringers, with the same upper and lower wings, the latter disassata towards the rear, which ended in a conventional empennage queue from monoderiva. The sturdy undercarriage was fixed, before large rear wheels with fairing and a supportive shoe. The engine used on prototype, a radial Walter Castor, was replaced in production version by a more powerful Piaggio Star VII c. 35 with an accredited of 375 HP (276 kW) that could reach a top speed of 250 km/h. The quality of speed and acrobatic ability which are held by Ca. 113 were enhanced by a series of new world records conquered in the 1930s.
