During the development of the Beechcraft 77 Skipper aircraft, which began in the middle of the 70-ies of the last century, the management of the aircraft-building corporation Beech Aircraft Corporation intended to design a training aircraft, effective in terms of its flying and technical qualities, and very promising in terms of Operational capabilities. Nevertheless, during the development it was decided to improve the design of the aircraft, thereby ensuring a broader scope of the aircraft, in particular, this aircraft was positioned as a private aircraft, which led to a greater popularization of the project.

The aircraft model Beechcraft 77 Skipper has a fairly compact dimensions, allowing him and the minimum weight and good aerodynamics, which consequently makes the most maneuverable aircraft. Initially it was assumed that the aircraft will be treated to a class of ultra-light aircraft, however, for better stabilization during the flight. It was decided to further strengthen the structure of the aircraft, which led to its weighting, which is why the plane fell into the category of light aircraft.

His first flight tests of the aircraft model Beechcraft 77 Skipper suffered in mid-September 1978 years. All tests were carried out quite successfully, and after an additional (minor) to optimize the design of the aircraft, the project was sent to the serial production, where he was for a long enough period. That is primarily due to its very high popularity.

His direct application of plane found in the commercial sphere, in particular, the aircraft used for the transport of small loads (mostly mail and parcels), as a means of air taxi and lёtnymi schools for training future pilots piloting skills. Far Less important role aircraft Beechcraft 77 Skipper was also its operation as private transport, and, aircraft operation in this regard and continues to this day.

The aircraft Beechcraft 77 Skipper cabin can accommodate just two people, but here there is also additional space for the transport of small loads weighing up to a total 150-180 kg. Maximum takeoff weight Beechcraft 77 Skipper aircraft 760 limited weight in kilograms.

Aircraft Beechcraft 77 Skipper is equipped with power plant consisting of a piston aircraft engine brand Lycoming O-235-L2C, which is able to develop traction in 115 hp, allowing the aircraft the ability to reach speeds in 265 km \ h. (Maximum value), and travel distances of up to 720 kilometers.
