Developments turboprop aircraft Let L-610 were based on the model L-410Which has become very popular not only among the civilian airlines, but also in the Air Force of several countries. By its very nature, a general view of the plane is not changed - aircraft manufacturers lengthened fuselage of the aircraft and turboprop aircraft engines set a new high power, which in turn allows you to place on the board to 40 passengers. In addition, the aircraft Let L-610 was to replace Soviet aircraft An-24, All the more so due to its more efficient technical characteristics, the aircraft surpassed him, except, perhaps, passenger capacity, which amounted to less than ten people and the speed of flight, makes 438 km \ h.

The main problem faced by the Czech aviation engineer, was a selection of modern turboprop engines, which, in fact, was the main reason for a sufficiently long cycle of designing aircraft, but later it was decided to use the power plant, including the engines General Electric General Electric CT7 -9D, allowing to develop the total power in 3500 hp

The cabin was quite roomy, and unlike the AN-24, which is expected eventually to replace, was quite comfortable.

His first flight, the plane Let L-610 1988 made in the year, however, despite the rather successful development, no aircraft was not delivered to any airline in the world, mainly because of the need to implement a number of improvements and a high enough price.

For almost ten years, aircraft designers of Let Kunovice trying to finalize the design of the passenger aircraft, optimizing it to modern standards, but in spite of this, the mass production of the aircraft has not been adjusted, mainly due to lack of demand for this aircraft in the market. Depending on the modification of prototypes, flight performance of the aircraft vary somewhat, but mostly it was reflected in the range and speed of flight.

However, after the aircraft manufacturer Let Kunovice was acquired by Ayres Corporation, attempts were made to recreate the model under a different name - Ayres 7000, however, in the end, due to a lack of funds, the aircraft maker was closed, and all attempts build a turboprop 40-seater passenger aircraft were finally stopped.
