Designers Édouard Joly and Jean Délémontez based the design on two of their earlier projects; they combined the wing of the D10 with a lengthened and widened version of the D9 fuselage. The first example flew on 4 April 1950. Of conventional taildragger configuration, the D11 featured fixed, spatted undercarriage, and accommodated pilot and passenger side-by-side. The wing panels outboard of the landing gear struts had a marked dihedral. Various powerplants were installed, typically Salmson 9, Continental A65 or Continental C90.

D11s were licence-built by a number of manufacturers in Europe and elsewhere, including Wassmer, Aero Difusión, and Falconar. Many examples were also home-built with plans provided by Falconar.
