The Comp Air 6 aircraft is manufactured by American aircraft builders in the form of kit-kits for self-assembly, which in turn allows you to build a full-fledged aircraft with minimal expenses, spending about 900 hours on it. Assembly kits could be implemented both with the use of a standard power plant, which is very expensive, but satisfying high flying and technical qualities, and without an aircraft engine, which made it possible to select another power plant and thereby reduce the cost of the aircraft several times.

Nevertheless, in addition to passenger transportation, the Comp Air 6 is also capable of transporting cargo with a total maximum take-off weight of 1293 kilograms, while flights can be performed at distances up to 1287 kilometers, which meets most of the requirements for aircraft of this type.

As the power plant on the plane Comp Air 6 installed piston aircraft engine Franklin - quite reliable, but expensive in terms of maintenance, it is able to develop a craving to 220 hp, which in turn accelerates the aircraft up to a maximum airspeed in 268 km \ h . However, if necessary, a plane can be set and another aircraft engine, including more powerful, which in turn will improve the flight performance of the aircraft.
