Airplane models Arado Ar 79 began to develop aircraft designers of the German company «Arado Flugzeugwerke GmbH» in the middle of 30-ies of the last century, at the same time, if initially the aircraft intended to operate exclusively as the training aircraft, then later, the plane was also a actively used and as a private aircraft.

The aircraft Arado Ar 79 has a fairly compact size that provides the aircraft a high rate maneuverability and improved handling, it can be used and as a sports aircraft, although, as such, the aircraft is not positioned.

Production of the aircraft Arado Ar 79 model was very neprotyazhёnnym - for the entire issue of the German aircraft manufacturers has been created just 48 aircraft, most of which today is lost for free, and the rest of the collection of museums and private owners.

The first flight tests of the aircraft models Arado Ar 79 were held in 1938 year, and, if the original aircraft manufacturers questioned the correctness of the structural calculation of the aircraft, then later, after successfully finished the tests, the project was called really successful, which is why, starting from 1939 years, the plane began to be produced commercially, but only for a few years.

The cockpit of the Arado Ar 79 is compact enough to accommodate only two people - a pilot and one passenger, or an instructor and a cadet, when it comes to the operation of an aircraft as a training tool. Due to the very large space constraints inside the cabin, the aircraft can not be used to transport any cargo, and luggage taken on board the aircraft must also have very compact dimensions, which is one of the negative aspects of using this aircraft. Due to the rather robust design of the fuselage, the aircraft can be used to perform simple aerobatic tricks, however, in this case, the load on the wing should not be very large.

Power plant light aircraft Arado Ar 79 model unit consists of a piston aircraft engine brand Hirth HM 500A1, which has a capacity of 105 hp The use of this propulsion system allows the aircraft to accelerate to cruising speed in 230 km \ h., And to overcome the distance in kilometers 1020, which is quite acceptable figure.
