The creation of a multi-purpose aircraft for the Czech aircraft construction company TeST Gliders was the first attempt in the design of aircraft, since earlier this aircraft manufacturer was engaged exclusively in the development of gliders. In view of the fact that the project could not pay off, the Czech aircraft manufacturers decided to follow a slightly different path and create a multi-purpose aircraft, in particular, the TeST TST-5 Variant aircraft combined the capabilities of both the airplane and the airframe, and although in fact it can be attributed to Class motorized gliders, the aircraft still belongs to the class of light aircraft.

Aircraft manufacturers of the company «TeST Gliders» paid a minimum of effort for the design of the aircraft in an attempt to minimize the cost for the increase in demand among potential customers.

His first flight of the aircraft TeST TST-5 Variant implemented in 1998 year, however, as expected the Czech aircraft manufacturers, large furore plane could not make, although it continued to be produced for several years. Issue aircraft TeST TST-5 Variant was conducted exclusively as a kit for self-assembly, in this case, at a relatively low price, which constituted in the year 1999 17250 dollars for a complete aircraft assembly required only about 250 hours, which is quite a bit.

On board the aircraft TeST TST-5 Variant can accommodate only two people at the same time, the scope of the aircraft is very much limited. The aircraft usually used for private flight to the small distances, as well as a motorized glider, although the scope of its wings and is small. Transportation in the cabin of the aircraft TeST TST-5 Variant of any goods is not possible due to the absence here of sufficient free space.

Powerplant TeST TST-5 Variant aircraft consists of a piston aircraft engine M-125, the ability to develop traction in 40 hp, which is enough to carry out the rise of the plane with two people on board into the air, and to carry out flights to 165 velocity in km \ h. (Maximum value) and to make flights at distances of up to 385 kilometers.
