The Temco Buckaroo was designed in the late 1940s as an extremely low-cost trainer for commercial and export markets. Temco's failure to secure a USAF order for the Backaroo forced it to turn to foreign governments to keep the production lines going, yet only a few export orders materialized. Production of the type did not top 20 examples, at least 10 of which went to Saudi Arabia.
Israel bought a single Buckaroo in 1948. In 1950 the aircraft was evaluated along with the Fokker Instructor and the de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk for possible use as a trainer with the IAF flight school. Losing the competion, the single Buckaroo was retired sometime in late 1950 or early 1951.
