The production of the Aviat Eagle II was associated with the need to create and subsequently distribute a reliable, high-quality, high-speed and inexpensive light-engine aircraft capable of flying over short distances, but at high speeds. As a rule, such aircraft are operated exclusively by those owners who love high-speed flights, as well as the performance of aerobatic numbers, which is mainly due to the high maneuverability of this aircraft.

His first flight of the aircraft Aviat Eagle II did in 1977 year, however, production of the current model is made solely on the basis of the needs of the customer, and given the fact that the applicability of the aircraft was very narrow, and the release of the aircraft was quite small.

On board the aircraft Aviat Eagle II can accommodate only two people, and, classification of aircraft to the class of light sport aircrafts does not mean that these aircraft are not used for passenger transportation by private owners, however, it was more of a rarity than a daily occurrence, connected, usually with a small distance of flight of the aircraft (up to 610 km.).

Depending on the modification of the aircraft, as the power plant could be used a piston aircraft engine Lycoming AEIO-360 200 hp capacity or Lycoming AEIO-540 300 capacity hp With its powerful propulsion, aircraft Aviat Eagle II can accelerate up to speed in 296 km \ h (the maximum speed of flight depending on the version), thus, the high maneuverability of the aircraft is maintained regardless of this factor.

Initially, the American aircraft manufacturers presented version Christen Eagle I, which had a slightly different design and a number of distinguishing features, but due to some technological features, the aircraft had not gained its great popularity.

Version Aviat Eagle II, originally cited as Christen Eagle II, gained more aerodynamic features, and almost completely devoid of all previous had shortcomings. Unlike the previous version, the aircraft was equipped with a coaxial control that also allows the training of future pilots.

The Christen Super Eagle modification was a more compact version of the aircraft, which provided more maneuverability. In addition, the aircraft was also equipped with a more powerful power plant, which was a Lycoming AEIO-540 piston engine with a power of 300 hp, which significantly increased the aircraft's flight performance.
