In the middle of 40-ies began the first attempts to create the future of the aircraft, thus, aircraft manufacturers have relied on an earlier model - Aeronca C-2, moreover, mostly it does not refer to the technical characteristics of the aircraft and to complete the aircraft.

The Aeronca 15AC Sedan made its first flight in 1947, however, according to the engineers, the aircraft still required a number of minor improvements, and in less than a year, these aircraft entered serial production.

As the power plant on the base version of the aircraft Aeronca 15AC Sedan used aircraft engine piston-type Continental C-145-2b able to develop power in 145 hp, taking into account the time of production of the aircraft it was quite impressive. With powerful propulsion system, the aircraft can accelerate up to speed in 224 km \ h., And to overcome the distance to 644 kilometers.

In late September 1948 years, on the basis of the main production version has been created and seaplane, which enjoys far less popular among the customers.
