The Aerospatiale-Potez-Fouga CM170 Magister is a jet aircraft designed in France in the early 1950s, and initially intended for the training of military pilots. Recognizable by its rear “V” (known as “butterfly”) tail, it has been produced in a thousand copies and used by around twenty countries. Many copies are still in service today.
Thanks to its capabilities, the Fouga Magister was adopted as an elementary aerobatic aircraft for several acrobatic patrols, including the famous Patrouille de France which used it for 24 years (from 1956 to 1980).
