Desperate to get a foothold in America. The Fokker F-11 (B.IV) was later converted to a twin-engine F-11C with a Fokker F-32 engine installation (Pratt & Whitney R-1860 engine) in an effort to meet a US Coast Guard twin-engine flying boat specification.

Fokker F-11AHB with civilian registration NC127M was intended for civilian aviation. It is known to have the registration of Western Air Express but has probably never flown for it. There is no airline record of it. It was eventually sold to Garfield Wood for speedboat racing.

Fokker succeeded in trying to gain a foothold in America when General Motors acquired 41 percent of the shares. This resulted in a capital injection. The "Fokker Aircraft Corporation of America" now became a part of the General Motors subsidiary: "General Aviation Corporation". The Fokker F-11 that served as the basis was rebuilt by General Aviation and became the General Aviation PJ-1, This was equipped with 2 Pratt & Whitney R-1340 Wasp with an output of 420 hp. Five aircraft were built and sold only to the US Coastguard (USCG). The aircraft were not real amphibious aircraft. They had retractable landing gear and could also land on land. Here is the USCG's first built PJ-1, the Antaris (FLB-51).

General Aviation PJ-2 CG-51 Antares

FLB-51 as it was originally numbered began its life as a PJ-1. Its engines were modified from a pusher-type to tractor-type by the Coast Guard in 1933 and it was redesignated as a PJ-2.  It was later given the designation V-116.  It was initially stationed at Air Station Cape May, New Jersey and later transferred to Air Station Biloxi, Mississippi. This was the end of Fokker's efforts to built Flying boats in the USA.
