ZMAJ Fizir FP-2

A total of 66 aircraft of the aforementioned type were manufactured and served in the Yugoslav Royal Air Force between 1936 and 1941.

These aircraft were primarily utilized for the purpose of training military pilots.

The initial batch of 20 aircraft was delivered to the YRAF in early 1936 and was promptly introduced into the first and second Pilot School.

Subsequently, between 1938 and 1940, an additional 45 aircraft were delivered.

All three series of aircraft were equipped identically, with the exception of the third series of five aircraft, which were outfitted for blind flying.

These planes featured a new pilot’s panel and Zemun Teleoptik, which was similar to the Rogožarski PVT.

The fifth series of Zmaj Fizir FP-2, which consisted of 15 aircraft and was ordered in 1940, was not completed by the onset of the April war.

At the beginning of 1943, the Germans permitted the factory to finalize the fifth series aircraft Zmaj Fizir FP-2 for the Croatian Air Force.

However, by Liberation Day Zemun on October 22, 1944, only eight aircraft had been delivered.

The remaining seven aircraft were completed and handed over to the People’s Liberation Army Air Force for use by the Yugoslav Army.

Consequently, the total number of Zmaj Fizir FP-2 aircraft produced amounted to 81.

Thirteen Zmaj Fizir FP-2 aircraft were confiscated by the Italians, who employed them alongside the Rogožarski PVT aircraft from May 1941 to June 1943 against the rebels in Montenegro and Albania.

The Germans seized seven Zmaj Fizir FP-2 at the Butmir airport and transferred them to their allies, the Croats (NDH), who utilized them throughout the war, commencing in 1941.

All surviving aircraft of this type were incorporated into the Yugoslav Army Air Force (RV JA) and were operational until 1947.
