The S-11 is a single engine two seater propeller aircraft designed and manufactured by the Fokker aircraft company. It was a basic trainer and called the Instructor. Development started after the Second World War when the company was starting up again and the first S-11 prototype flew December 1947. Modifications were done leading to the final S-11.
Fokker S-11 trainer aircraft were sold to the Royal Netherlands Air Force (KLu) but also exported to Israel, Italia. License manufacturing took place in Brasil as T-11; (even a S-12 fitted with tricycle landing gear was locally manufactured known as the T-22).
Many surviving aircraft are now flown in private flying clubs.
Fokker S-11 Instructor
This Fokker S-11 basic trainer 'E-9" was used by the Royal Netherlands Air Force (KLu). This aircraft bears the name of Ben van Schaik, but this was set later on the aircraft when used by a private flying club. It is on display at the Aviodrome museum in Lelystad.

The prototype Fokker S.12 was based on the S-11 but had a tricycle gear with nose strut. The private "PH-NDC" serial 6287 is seen here at the Aviodrome museum in Lelystad:
A few scale models were issued of the Fokker S-11. CMK Czech resin had a nice 1/72 resin model with a nice new KP model released in 2022 in several kit boxes. SMER had an old 1/40 model.
