In 1923 the NEIAF ordered ten Fokker D.C.Is as a replacement for the disappointing Vickers Viking IV.
They were built at the Fokker factory at Veere and entered service in March 1926. The last two Fokker D.C.Is were withdrawn from use in 1934.
Some received later the revised and modified Napier Lion II engines of the withdrawn Viking.
December 29, 1930 the first parachute jump in the Netherlands East Indies was made from a Fokker D.C.I.
