The first prototype has passed performance tests with small observations production aircraft "Procter» I have started to arrive in the Royal Air Force in the mid-1940-ies. After the release of 247 aircraft Mk I (all of them were equipped as messengers and had dual controls), the company "Persivel" began manufacturing aircraft 175 and 437 Mk II aircraft Mk III, all of which were equipped to train radio operators. Latest commissioned RAF was a modification of Mk IV (258 delivered copies), which is characterized by a longer fuselage with a cabin for four people. Although they are all equipped planes to train radio operators, with some aircraft modifications Mk IV was later removed electronic equipment, and they have been converted into coherent "workhorses."
