The Forney Aircraft Manufacturing Co. of Fort Collins, Colorado, USA, bought the type certificate from Univair in April 1955, the first aircraft, redesignated F-1 Aircoupe and registered N6130C (c/n 5600), flew for the first time on February 18, 1956 and a total of 115 aircraft (c/n 5600 to 5714) were produced by 1959, when production was halted. Reportedly the company used the marketing name Fornaire from 1958, although the name was not used to register aircraft.
Thereafter the type was produced by a number of companies (and significantly modified) by:
Air Products, Carlsbad, New Mexico
50 F-1A AirCoupe (c/n 5715 to 5764)
Alon, McPherson, Kansas
245 A-2 Aircoupe (c/n A-1 to A-245)

11 M-10 Cadet (c/n 690001 to 60011)
