Designing the plane Comp Air 7 started American aeronautical engineer-constructor at the end of 90-ies of the last century, when this was based on earlier models, produced this Aircraft Corporation, but the aircraft itself was optimized both for private operation and under commercial use, and that was ultimately one of the reasons why the plane has gained more popularity than the previous model.

As before, the Comp Air 7 was produced by Comp Air Inc. in the form of kits for self-assembly, and despite the fact that the assembly was supposed to take more than 1000 hours, the aircraft was still popular due to its low cost and high flight performance. In addition, aircraft developers offered future buyers two different versions - one of them was equipped with a piston aircraft engine, and the other with a turboprop, and, contrary to expectations, the most popular modification was a less powerful piston aircraft engine.

On board the aircraft Comp Air 7 7 can accommodate up to people, as evidenced by the corresponding name and model, in particular, we are talking about a pilot and six passengers, which allows the aircraft to operate in the commercial sector. Maximum range of flight of the aircraft is quite acceptable and limited 1685 km., Which ensures the applicability, as the local routes and regional routes to follow.

The power unit Comp Air 7, depending on the modification, can be represented as a Lycoming IO-540 piston engine, developing power in 290 hp, and accelerating the plane to 280 km / h. (The maximum speed of the flight), and the turbo-propeller aircraft engine Walter M601, the power in 660 hp, capable of giving the aircraft speed in 445 km / h. (Maximum speed of flight). Despite the fact that the turboprop engine is more powerful and greatly improves the aircraft's flight performance, its maintenance is a very expensive process, which in turn influenced the great popularity of the model equipped with a piston engine.

Among the released versions, one should distinguish between such versions, as:

  • Comp Air 7 - Main production version, equipped with a piston aircraft engine;
  • Comp Air 7 SLX - Modification to the turboprop powerplant.

In general, in addition to propulsion, both versions are similar in comparison to each other.
