US-aircraft manufacturers experts have launched the development of the aircraft model Beechcraft Starship in 1979 year, with the main goal set in front of them, was to design a unique in terms of its design aircraft that can find applications from private owners, including suitable for use as administrative-type aircraft.

Aircraft Beechcraft Starship really has a very unusual design for its time, in particular this applies to the virtual absence of the tail section, as well as the turboprop powerplant installation, located in the rear part of the fuselage and do push role.

The development of a unique aircraft of its kind, the Beechcraft Starshi model, took American aircraft manufacturers almost 7 years — the aircraft made its first flight in the 1986 year, after which it was almost immediately launched into production, up to the 1995 year. Over the entire period of production, American aircraft manufacturers built 53 aircraft, and experts did not rule out that one of the reasons for the rather mediocre popularity of aircraft was their high cost, which was about 3,9 million dollars.
