The design of Comp Air 10 became one of the biggest and most important tests for the American aircraft corporation CompAir Inc., in spite of the fact that this aircraft was manufactured as kit-sets for self-assembly, it had certain prospects, both for Private owners, and for airlines. The main feature of this aircraft was the ability to take on board a large number of passengers, whereas, often, aircraft designed for self-assembly, usually designed to transport a small number of people or an equivalent in mass of the quantity of cargo. The maximum payload capacity on board the Comp Air 10 is 1112 kilogram, which in fact meets most of the requirements for aircraft of this type.

On board the turboprop plane Comp Air 10 10 can accommodate up to people, including one member of the crew and nine passengers, ensuring the acceptability of commercial air travel for the routes of local and regional destination - the maximum flight range of the aircraft is 1600 km.

The powerplant of the Comp Air 10 is represented by one turbo-propeller aircraft engine Walter M601D, the developed power of which is 657 hp, which in turn provides the maximum possible speed of the flight in 357 km / h. One of the drawbacks of this aircraft engine is its very low reliability and expensive maintenance, which in turn played a certain role on the low popularity of this aircraft - in four years of production, with 2011 for 2015 year, only 7 self-construction kits were built, however , Most of them are used for commercial purposes, which underlines some of the prospects of this project. In addition, the designers of the aircraft envisaged the installation of other turboprop type power plants, which in turn may slightly improve the aircraft performance characteristics of this aircraft, and in some cases, and partially reduce the cost of the aircraft itself.
