In 1949, the Armée de l'Air Française (French Air Force) decided to equip their flying schools with a two-seats jet-powered trainer. Turbomeca began with the study and construction of a engine with 400kg thrust. A suitable motor was not available at that time. Halfway through 1952 came the Turbomeca Marboré II with the desired thrust available. The by Air Fouga developed CM 170 made ??with these engines its first flight on 07.23.1952. Besides France ,the CM 170 was purchased by twenty countries. The total production amounted to 929 copies. Belgium ordered in 1958 45 Magisters to replace its T-6 Harvard and bought another 5 in 1970 from the German Air Force. Belgium and the Netherlands had a joint pilot training. During the Advanced Flight Training a 150 hours were flown on the Magister.

The Tiger Moth was developed from the Gipsy Moth and made its first flight in 1931. The aircraft was chosen by the RAF as a primary trainer. After the first order of 35 aircraft it was decided for the follow-up order to make some modifications and to make it possible to practice instrument flying. Also, a slightly heavier engine was installed. This version was the DH, 82A flew in Netherlands for instance with the KLu (Royal Netherlands Air Force), the MLD ( Dutch Naval Air Service) and the Rijksluchtvaartschool. Immediately after WWII, the KLu purchased a total of 56 Tiger Moths from the RAF and used them till 1963 for pimary flight training. In 1956, three aircraft were acquired by the Naval Air Service. From mid 50 years the Tiger Moth's were gradually replaced by the Fokker S-11. The 002 is one of th three aircraft which were acquired from the RNAF .From mid 50 years the Tiger Moth's were gradually replaced by the Fokker S-11.

For the training of both military and civilian pilots the North American Harvard has been of considerable importance. In 1935 North American introduced the NA-16. From this prototype, the trainer AT-6 Texan was developed. Already in 1938 the plane was ordered by the USAAF, the RAF and France. The RAF renamed the AT-6 in Harvard. Over the years a number of modifications were added which resulted in the variants Harvard II, IIA and IIB. In total there are more than 15,000 Harvard and AT-6's built of which 1500 at Noorduyn in Canada. Immediately after WII the LSK (later KLU, Royal Netherlands Air Force) bought 150 Harvard IIB from the RAF, of which six units were used for spare parts. Again in 1947 20 more were bought from South Africa as well to be used for spare parts.Once more in 1949, 50 were acquired from the RCAF. After an overhaul at Fokker, Amsterdam these were added to the fleet.All Dutch registered Harvards were built at Noorduyn, The B-56 ​​(ex RAF FT176) has flown by the KLU till 1965 and then transferred to the MLD(Dutch Naval Airservice) and got the new registration 043. In 1971 the aircraft was sold and registered as PH-KMA. In 1978 the registration was canceled.

In 1926 the Dutch Navy ordered a number of Dornier Wal flying boats to patrol the vastness of the Dutch Indies. The Wal's performed good, but soon got outdated.In 1934 the Dutch Navy started an investigation into a succeeder for the Wal. Around that time Dornier-Metallbauten G.m.b.H. in Friedrichshafen made the first prototype for the Do-18, a modernized version of the Wal. The Do-18 did not meet up to the required standards of the Dutch Navy. C. Sanders, then officer 2nd class of the Navy, made up the requirements for the successor of the Wal. The new plane had to be bigger, equipped with three engines, no pusher propellers, a maximum speed of 315 km/h, be of an all-metal construction and comforatble enough for long distances. With these specifications in hand the Dutch Navy went to a number of company's for their answer to the requirements. Fokker came up with the B-V, which was turned down, just like the design of the American Sikorsky company. Dornier was the only one of the three that could be ready in time to meet the requirements of the Dutch Navy. Before the year was over a detailed model was ready to be shown to the Dutch. On August 6th 1936 the first contract was signed for the delivery of 6 flying boats to the Dutch Navy, getting the designation Do-24. The German rebuild after WW1 was in full swing and the RLM (Reichsluftfahrministerium) was not willing to make any production capacity available for the Dutch Do-24's. The first order was therefore placed via the Swiss Aero-Metall A.G. in Zurich. Aero-Metall was the Swiss Dornier factory and she handed the order over to a Dornier daughter company, A.G. fur Dornier Flugzeuge based at Altenrhein, on the Swiss side of the Bodensee. The Dutch Government decided to replace the three Junkers Jumo 205C diesel engines generating 600 hp the Wright Cyclone GR-1820-F52 radial engines. The choice for these engines was made because the Fokker T.IV and the large order for the Glenn Martin 139 bomber were equipped with this engine. The engine was 15% lighter and gave 50% more power than the Junkers diesels. The first flight of any Do-24 took place on July 3rd 1937. One day later the aircraft was handed over to the MLD (Marine Luchtvaart Dienst, Dutch Naval Service) and September 5th the aircraft, now with the registration D-ADLP, was flown to the Weser Flugzeugwerke at Einswarden for the sea trials which were to be held on the North Sea. The seaworthiness of the Do-24 V3 amazed the spectators, there were times when the cockpit of the aircraft was completely submerged. The trials lasted till the end of October and were concluded to full satisfaction. The first Do-24K-1 got the registration X-1 and shipped from Hamburg to Morokrembangan in the Dutch East Indies. Early 1938 the aircraft was ready for it's first mission. The Dutch government decided finally to order a total of 96 Do-24K planes, but due to the Japanese Invasion only 37 were delivered, partly manufactored under licence by Aviolanda. Only 5 Dorniers servived the Japanese invasion and flown to Australia. They entered service in the RAAF but withdrawn in 1944 due to a lack of spareparts. The X-5 entered service on 18-03-1938 and transferred to the RAAF om 29-04-1942 and registered as A49-1. Withdrawn on 20-12-1944.

After WW1 Germany was not allowed to build aircraft because of the Treaty of Versailles. Dornier designed its aircraft in Germany but the production was diverted to Italy. The Dornier Wal, one of the most famous German flying boats of its time, made the first flight on November 6 1922.The plane, designed by Claude Dornier, was a development of the Dornier GS.1 of 1921. The monoplane was constructed of duraluminum and equipped with the by Claude Dornier developed "Stummels", a kind of stabilization on both sides of the fuselage. One of the first orders came from Spain for six aircraft. CASA in Madrid also received the production license. Shortly after the Japanese Kawasaki also received a license for the construction of the Dornier Wal, later followed by Aviolanda Papendrecht in the Netherlands and by the American Dornier plant in the US. Until 1931 the Wal was built in military and civil variants built by CMASA Pisa, Italy.A total of 300 Wal's have been built. In 1926 the Dutch navy ordered ordered 46 Dornier Wal flying boats for patrol flights in Dutch East Indies. The first six were built by CMASA and assembled by Aviolanda with parts built by CMASA. The remaining 36 were built under license by Aviolanda. 40 Were of type Wal G with two Lorraine-Dietrich engines of 450 hp each and the last 6 of type F with two Lorraine-Courlis of 600 hp each and with slightly langer wings whereby the takeoff weight of 5,700 kg went to 7,000 kg. From 1939 the Wal's were phased out and replaced by the specially for the Netherlands designed Dornier D0-24K. The D-16 joined the MLD on 20-08-1928 and was written off in March 1940 at the Naval Air Base Morokrembangan in the Dutch East Indies.

With 9,816 aircraft built, the Mitchell is the most built bomber in the Second World War. Many variants have been built which, depending on the type, were used as bomber and / or heavily armed attack plane for ground targets. In 1942 Mitchells attack Tokyo by surprise from aircraft carriers. After the May-invasion of The Netherlands by the Germans, some dozens of naval personnel managed to fly to England with Fokker T.VIIIw torpedo bombers. This group was assigned to the RAF and became Dutch squadron 320, equipped with AVRO Ansons and later Lockheed Hudsons alongside of the Fokkers. In 1942 it was decided to replace these aircraft with Mitchells B-25C / D and Js, which became operational from the end of March 1943. This repaint package contains the regular RAF painting plus that was used during the invasion in June 1944. After the war, the MLD received a total of 25 former Mitchells from the RAF to rebuild the MLD. They were stationed at Valkenburg air base. Six and later another five were demolished for spare parts. Most Mitchells were part of the MLD fleet until the end of 1949. The last two were retired at the beginning of 1952. They were succeeded by the Lockheed Harpoon which was more suitable for the specific MLD tasks.

The PV-2 was developed from the Lockheed Ventura PV-1. From 1944 onwards more than 500 were produced for the US Navy and deployed as a maritime reconnaisance and patrol bomber. At the end of WII, the PV-2 half of the US Navy patrol squadrons were already equipped with the PV-2 and after the war the aircraft became the standard maritime reconnaisance and patrol bomber of the US Navy. NATO was established in 1949 and the Netherlands was asked to participate in NATO maritime protection program of the North Sea, The Channel and the northern part of the Atlantic Ocean. The Netherlands had no money to buy the required aircraft. The MDAP (Mutual Defense Assistance Program) provided a solution. The USA offered for the time being 18 PV-2s till the Netherlands later could replaced them by the more modern Lockheed P2V-5 Neptune. After the training of crews the USA the aircraft were flown to the Dutch Valkenburg Air Base at the end of 1951. Until 1955 they were used for OSRD tasks until they were replaced by the Lockheed Neptunes. The PV-2s were then transferred to Portugal.
