The development of this multi-purpose aircraft started by German aircraft manufacturers in 1965 year, with the main purpose of the initialization start design work served as the need for a suitable aircraft for the transport of passengers and goods is capable to carry out landing on water.

A sufficiently long period of development of the Pöschel Equator aircraft was associated with several re-optimizations of the aircraft design, in particular, it was initially assumed that the aircraft would belong to the class of light aircraft, but since the project would hardly be able to recoup itself in the shortest time, it was decided to expand The internal space of the aircraft, thereby allowing the placement of more people or cargo, and to ensure the aircraft is very popular. Nevertheless, the aircraft was never able to find significant support from potential customers, therefore only the 3 aircraft of this model were built by German aircraft builders for the entire production cycle.

Aircraft Pöschel Equator can pick up on your board up to 6 people, including one pilot and five passengers. In addition, thanks to a sufficiently powerful propulsion system used on this model of the aircraft, the aircraft is capable of carrying on his board and to 1 ton payload.

Despite the fact that the Pöschel Equator aircraft never gained popularity, German aircraft builders repeatedly re-optimized this aircraft, mainly replacing the current version of the power plant with a more powerful and productive one. The basic version of the Pöschel Equator is equipped with a Lycoming TIO-541 turbocharged six-cylinder engine, capable of developing power in 310 hp, but later versions were also equipped with turboprop powerplants, which increased the flight speed to a higher level. The maximum flight distance of the German amphibian Pöschel Equator is quite impressive, and amounts to 5400 kilometers, which in turn provides ample opportunities to overcome long distances.
