Predominately a training aircraft there were 33 Saaski produced or the Finnish Air Force, some fitted with floats, which were still fully aerobatic. A further 5 were sold privately. The aircraft served between 1928 and 1943. Two are preserved one in the Finnish Aviation Museum and one in the Maritime Centre Vellamo.
