The Comp Air 12 aircraft made its first flight in mid-April 2007, while work on the design of the aircraft was carried out for almost two years, and the main circumstance for the development of the aircraft was the need to provide the US small aircraft market with roomy small aircraft, which categories of which the Comp Air 12 belongs.

When developing the aircraft Comp Air 12 American aircraft manufacturers have taken into account the experience of previous years, and largely standardized basic elements of the aircraft, which thus led to a reduction in the cost (about 2-3%), as well as the time required to assemble the aircraft, which vary between 850-900 hours.
