Some saw service with ALAT in Morocco 1957-59. Replaced for front-line Army use by Nord 3400 in about 1958-61. Most survivors were then allocated to secondary units, including several with GAALEA/312 at Salon using F-SDYx callsigns and one with Aeronavale (s/n 26 F-YCZH=CAN8 with DCAN, St Tropez).

Most French civilian registration allocations were not taken up. Several were not used at all, some just used short-term in 1964-65 for ferrying on Laissez Passer (temporary permit to fly). Many of these registrations were subsequently reallocated to other aircraft.
