When the relative simplicity of its design, model aircraft Aermacchi AM.3 is quite maneuverable and reliable in terms of its operation, which attracted potential customers. Over the entire period of production, which was carried out only for a few years, 46 aircraft of this model, of which, to date, we know of the existence of only 8 of aircraft was built.
