Since re-combat troops RAF jet aircraft at the end of 1940-ies went strides, Air Headquarters has come to the conclusion that the sequence of the plane "Printays» (Prentice) - Plane "Harvard» (Harvard) in its training program does not provide pilotov- beginners jets enough experience to fly in combat aircraft. Air Ministry issued Operational requirements 0R.257, who described in detail the need for a new piston trainer aircraft with improved performance characteristics.

Although the rate and was not seen as the main characteristic of the potential of the aircraft, it had to be capable of performing cruising flight at speeds 204 km / h (110 nautical miles per hour) and have a duration flight of at least two hours.The answer of "Persivel» (Percival) to these demands became 0R.257 aircraft "Provost» (Provost - Rector). The company anticipated the requirements of the Royal Air Force by making on their own initiative mockup training aircraft called R.56 that embodies the requirements of the majority of the Air Force. The competition for the replacement of aircraft "Printays" was tough, at least 15 companies have put forward their proposals.

Exactly two years later, the first production aircraft, "Provost" debuted in the basic training squadrons of the Central Flying School. In fact, over a three-year period in the Royal Air Force was delivered more aircraft 330 "Provost", which remained in operation until their gradual replacement of the following training aircraft "Jet Provost" Company "Hunting» (Hunting).
