American aircraft manufacturers have started to work on the development of passenger aircraft Convair CV-880 50 in the first half-years of the last century. As a point of departure was borrowed model airliner Convair CV-540, which has undergone a number of important structural and technical changes, which in turn allowed the aircraft to carry on their board more number of people to carry out flights with greater speed and long range.

By optimizing the design of the aircraft Convair CV-880, the aircraft became more aerodynamic, and therefore increases its reliability and minimize drag, which in turn led to 7% fuel savings.

Initially it was assumed that the airplane Convair CV-880 can be used not only for passengers but also for the transport of goods, however, because of the design features, the plane is not applicable in this regard.

Airliner Convair CV-880 made its first flight in January 1959 year, with all the tests of the aircraft were very successful, and therefore, from the middle of the same year, this aircraft was produced serially. Due to the high passenger capacity, the aircraft can carry a very large number of passengers on its board, which affected the popularity of this aircraft, which was manufactured for several years - for the current period, aircraft builders from the company "Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation" built 102 aircraft, operation Which at the moment is officially terminated.

Aircraft Convair CV-880, depending on the interior layout, can carry on its board until 110 passengers, while the minimum crew of an aircraft consists of only three people, which was very promising for the airlines, which have sought to minimize their costs, removing activities of the highest possible profit.

Passenger airliner model Convair CV-880 equipped with power plantconsisting of four turbofan engines of the brand General Electric CJ805-23B, each of which had its own thrust in 71,4 kN, which is mainly the plane and provided such a high duty rate. The maximum of the aircraft airspeed is 990 km \ h., While the distance of the flight is limited to the distance 6115 kilometers.

Apart from the main production version of the aircraft, aircraft manufacturers have implemented and also the release of the upgraded version of the aircraft - Convair CV-990, which has improved means of avionics, as well as a more efficient aircraft engines.
