The first attempts to design small-engine aircraft Chrislea Super Ace were made in 1946 year, and after a series of the done research in 1948 year, the aircraft arrived in mass production. During design, the British developers set out to create a multi-purpose aircraft, capable of not only transportation of people and cargo transportation, which was able to do in the end.

Device aircraft Chrislea Super Ace is simple enough, but despite this fact, the model is quite robust, and of issued three years 21 aircraft (from 1948 on 1951), currently known to exist, at least, 15 aircrafts .

On board the aircraft Chrislea Super Ace can accommodate up to five people, including one pilot and four passengers, at the same time the aircraft is suitable for very neprotyazhёnnyh air travel - the maximum flight range of this model is only 644 kilometer, which was one of the reasons why the the aircraft is not entered into commercial operation.

The power plant of the aircraft Chrislea Super Ace presented piston aircraft engine de Havilland Gipsy Major 10 (depending on version) 145 hp power, which in turn provides airspeed in 203 km \ h. However, other versions of the aircraft, equipped with a more powerful propulsion system, which is somewhat influenced improved flight performance of the aircraft.

The main reason for the end of the production cycle for the production of light-aircraft Chrislea Super Ace, is the absence of the actual demand for them, though, as the experts, due to the increased passenger capacity of the aircraft, they could become an integral part of commercial use, which ultimately did not happen .

The first version of the model aircraft Chrislea Super Ace was the version CH3 Series 1 Ace, however, due to the exploitation of little row of piston aircraft engine, it was built just one unit.

In 1950 year, British aircraft manufacturers presented a model CH3 Series 2 Super Ace, which was equipped with a piston inline aircraft engine de Havilland Gipsy Major 10, and has a wingspan from this model has been increased to provide higher reliability during flight, for two years, was built 18 aircrafts

At the end of the year was presented 1950 modification CH3 Series 4 Skyjeep, is a modified version, with established here more advanced aircraft engine Blackburn Cirrus Major 3 155 capacity hp
