The Magister was the world's first reactive trainer aircraft to be mass-produced, and had a distinctive V-shaped tail (also the first in the world). It was built according to the requirements of the French Air Force. The company "Fouga" (Fouga) thoroughly relied on the pioneering work done by the designer Pierre Maubousin (Pierre Mauboussin), who showed his skills on light aircraft and gliders equipped with small jet engines. Reflecting on its achievements, the 170 SM aircraft "Majister" relied on two Marbore engines from the Turbomeca company, and so impressed the Air Force that the 10 pre-series aircraft were soon followed by a large order.

Really in the Air Force of France was delivered about 400 aircraft "Majestic", and then another 32 modified for the naval training training aircraft (featuring a brake hook and other minor modifications to the design) were commissioned by the French Navy under the designation CM 175 "Zephyr" (Zephyr ).
