History of the Fouga

History of the Fouga CM-170:

Originally designed as a glider, &  later improved and manufactured in France as the World's first large production Advanced Jet Fighter Training Aircraft, the Fouga Magister went on to fly for numerous Air Forces around the world.  The Fouga served with distinction both in combat and in its many different training roles. However, the CM-170 was made famous by the Patrouille de France (La PAF), and was better known as France's preferred mount for its Air Force Aerobatic Demonstration Team for many decades.  The Magister (or "Master of the School House", in its Latin to English translation) was flown by the following Aerobatic Demonstration Teams: Patrouille de France (PAF), the Irish Air Corps Silver Swallows, Belgium's Red Devils, Brazil's Esquadrilha da Fumaça, and Isreal's Aerobatic Demo Team (e.g. Tzukits), unitl its retirement in July 2010.  In France, The Fouga CM-170 was eventually replaced with the Dassault-Breguet/Dornier Alpha Jet in 1981 by the Patrouille de France.  But to this day, the Fouga Magister holds a special place of distinction throughout the world for its aviation historical value, and for having being instrumental in the training of so many fighter pilots around the world.
