CFS/FS98 Fouga Magister - Luftwaffe

The Fouga Magister (company designation CM.170) was a 1950s French two-seat jet trainer. The related CM.175 Zéphyr was a carrier-capable version for the French Navy.

The distinctive V-tail of the new CM.170 Magister originated on the CM.8 glider Fouga was using to experiment with jet engines. In December 1950, the Armée de l'Air ordered three prototypes, with the first aircraft flying on 23 July 1952. A pre-production batch of 10 were ordered in June 1953 followed by the first production order for 95 aircraft on 13 January 1954. Fouga built a new assembly plant at Toulouse-Blagnac to produce the aircraft. The aircraft entered service with AdA in 1956.

Due to different industrial mergers, the aircraft has been known as the "Fouga CM.170 Magister", "Potez (Fouga) CM.170 Magister", Sud Aviation(Fouga) CM.170 Magister" and "Aérospatiale (Fouga) CM.170 Magister" depending on where and when they were built.

The first export customer was the German Luftwaffe who ordered 62 aircraft from Fouga and Flugzeug Union Süd (Heinkel-Messerschmitt society)licence built a further 188 aircraft.

The German Luftwaffe operated the Fouga Magister between the years 1964 and 1980, mainly in advanced training and with hardpoints for light attack.
Currently, on this task has been replaced by the Dornier Alpha Jet.
