It was supposed to issue plane Comp Air 4 in the already fully assembled and ready for operation, but, ultimately, guide aircraft company decided that the aircraft will be available as a kit for self-assembly, which is somewhat reduced the cost of flying apparatus on the market, but at the same time resulted in reducing risk of this model.

On board the plane Comp Air 4 can carry up to four people, what corresponds to the model designation - one pilot and three passengers, however, in addition to passenger traffic, the aircraft is designed also for the transportation of goods, in particular, do not exceed the requirements of flight performance and beyond the dimensions of the cockpit.

The standard powerplant of the Comp Air 4 model is a Lycoming O-360-A1A piston four-cylinder aircraft engine developing 180 hp power, which makes it possible to carry out air travel at distances up to 1222 kilometers (maximum flight range of the aircraft), at maximum flight speed to 239 km \ h Initially, American aircraft engineers assumed to install the Walter aircraft engine, however, due to low practical qualities and low reliability, it was decided to install a piston powerplant that meets modern requirements and is inexpensive in terms of maintenance.

If necessary, the chassis of the aircraft may be replaced with wheel on the float, which in turn makes it possible to operate the aircraft as seaplanes, which also found its use from private owners.

In 2000-ies on the basis of the plane Comp Air 4 was created a modified version that allows you to post on the board to 6 people, including also a member of the crew, but despite this fact, the aircraft did not become popular among customers, and 20-year period, according to the 1995 2015 years, was built only 36 aircraft of this model.
