Fizir-F1-01
 
The Fizir F1V (Физир Ф1В - fizir prvi vojni - first military fizir -in Serbian) was a the basis from which engineer Rudolf Fizir developed a series of single-engined, two-seat, reconnaissance biplanes fitted with different engines. Construction was carried out in the Yugoslav aircraft factories "Zmaj" and "Rogožarski" between 1928 and 1932.
 
During factory tests, on 8 October 1926 Pilot V. Striževski flew the aircraft from Novi Sad to Skopje to Mostar to Rajlovac (Sarajevo) to Zagreb and returned to Novi Sad (a distance of 1410 km) over a period of 8 hours and 40 minutes.

Zmaj built 15 of the Fizir F1V-Wright version and 5 Jupiter-engined Fizir F1M floatplanes for Naval Aviation in 1930. Zmaj was also responsible for conversion of several Fizir-Maybach trainers to Lorraine-Dietrich engines in 1932, which extended the service life of these machines under the new name Fizir-Lorraine 400 hp.
