Developments amphibious aircraft Beriev Be-112 were associated with the need to create a multi-purpose aircraft, suitable for use in remote regions with abundant presence of water surfaces (cutting, lakes, seas, etc.). Due to quality and qualified approach to the production of the aircraft, managed to create the most high-quality design that provides accommodation on board a large number of people or the same load, not to exceed the maximum take-off weight of the aircraft.

Due to the large extent of the fuselage of the aircraft Beriev Be-112, 17 aircraft length is meters, the aircraft is fit for the carriage of oversized cargo, in particular, have great length, which is sufficient effectively to the special services and civil aviation.

On board the aircraft amphibious Beriev Be-112 27 can accommodate up passengers at the same time, it requires only two crew members for the aircraft control. In addition to passenger traffic, aircraft Beriev Be-112 is also suitable for carrying out flights on tourist routes, subject to the necessary minimum water surface area for take-off and landing, allowing the most efficient to operate the aircraft, including private carriers.

Maximum take on board the aircraft Beriev Be-112 2750 load of kilograms, which corresponds to the majority of requirements, and essentially makes the aircraft very effective.

The power plant of the Beriev Be-112 is represented by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-67R turboprop aircraft engines, capable of developing a power of 1424 hp. each, which provides the maximum flight speed of this aircraft equal to 420 km / h. Nevertheless, the maximum flight range of an aircraft is limited to one thousand kilometers, which is very little, and the maximum flight altitude cannot exceed 3 thousand meters, which somewhat limits the operational capabilities of the aircraft, preventing it from being operated in a number of areas related to aviation.

The data on the number of aircraft produced remains unknown, however, according to some reports, we are talking about 7 aircraft produced.
