Work on the development, design and construction of aircraft Aerospatiale SN 601 Corvette started to be conducted in the first half 60-ies, with specialists mainly paid attention to the design of the aircraft, which, according to experts, is very good success, even though the the fact that the great popularity of this aircraft did not bring the French aircraft manufacturers.

His first flight of the aircraft Aerospatiale SN 601 Corvette carried 16 July 1970 year, however, the technical unit has been recognized as imperfect, as a consequence, in the mass production of the aircraft was launched only in 1974 year where however, the sample is not too long - for the entire production cycle was built only 40 aircraft, thus, the main fact advocated a high price due to an extremely large investments in the development of the aircraft.

Depending on the modification and completion of the cabin on board Aerospatiale SN 601 Corvette can accommodate up to 14 passengers, which is suitable both for private business representatives, and as a means of achieving different kinds of charter flights by the airlines, and that later was used.

As a power plant, the Aerospatiale SN 601 Corvette uses two Pratt & Whitney Canada JT15D-4 turbofan aircraft engines, each of which is capable of developing 11,1 kN thrust (Aerospatiale SN 601 Corvette model), which is quite enough for air travel at a speed 760 km / h (maximum flight speed) and covering distances up to 2555 kilometers (maximum flight distance).

Model Aerospatiale SN 600 Corvette is the prototype of the main production version, in this case, the current model is currently being used, and its main difference is reduced passenger capacity and less powerful aircraft engines, each of which could develop traction in 9,8 kN, and therefore reduced and a top speed of flight.

However, the main production version was the modification of Aerospatiale SN 601 Corvette, which continues to operate, and now, with this applies not only to private owners, but also for air carriers, including those located in France, Spain and some other countries.
