The Fairchild F-11 Husky flew its first flight in June 1946, however, in fact, the aircraft itself was developed by Canadian aircraft engineers even during World War II, and it is worth paying tribute, the aircraft itself was developed in more than a year, and despite the fact that the release of the aircraft was quite limited, at the moment from 12 built aircraft, today it is known to operate at least 5 aircraft.

The main reason why the Fairchild F-11 Husky aircraft interested owners is its multi-use capability, in particular, on board this model aircraft can accommodate up to 12 people - two crew members and 10 passengers, and the aircraft is suitable for both air travel Local routes, and on regional air routes - the maximum range is 1050 kilometers. Among other things, the aircraft is also suitable for transporting a number of cargoes, the mass of which does not exceed 1250 kilogram, which, given that the aircraft can land on limited areas of the earth's or water surface, in some cases makes it irreplaceable.

The basic version of the Fairchild F-11 Husky is equipped with a radial piston aircraft engine Pratt & Whitney Wasp Junior, capable of developing power 450 hp, however, in the future, Canadian aircraft manufacturers have agreed on the need to eliminate the use of it because of inappropriate expensive maintenance and low reliability, which is why, in the subsequent versions of the aircraft were used other piston power plants.
