The aircraft is equipped with a turbo-propeller aircraft engine capable of developing Walter 601 657 hp power, which in turn provides the maximum speed of an aircraft in flight 367 km \ h., Making it possible to overcome the maximum distance flight in 2400 kilometers, the shortest possible time. Despite this fact, the very power unit supplied for self-assembly is not included and sold separately US Aircraft Corporation, which also allows you to operate other aircraft engines, including both turboprop and piston.

On board the Comp Air 3 aircraft can accommodate up to three people, including one pilot and two passengers. In addition, thanks to the availability of the possibility of dismantling two passenger seats, a different cargo can be accommodated on board the aircraft, which does not exceed the aircraft's size and satisfies the technical characteristics of this aircraft. For a variety of reasons, the Compair 3 model is not used for commercial purposes, however, later, modified versions were created on the basis of this model, some of which were used by air carriers to transport people and goods at short distances, mainly local and regional airlines.
