Its first flight Comp Air 9 made in 2011 year, while, due to a number of technical flaws, the release of this model began only in 2012 year. The aircraft was originally supposed to be produced in the already assembled state, however, the final decision was made in favor of the production of special kit-sets for self-assembly, which significantly reduced the cost of the aircraft. Comp Air 9 requires an order of 950 hours, but despite the long time, the aircraft of this model are popular, not only for private owners, but also for small air carriers operating on local and regional routes.

The Comp Air 9 turboprop propulsion system is a Honeywell TPE331-10 aircraft engine (if necessary, the Honeywell TPE331-12 model can also be installed) developing traction in the 1000 hp, which in turn allows for unimpeded air travel at distances up to 2778 kilometers ( maximum range of flight), at cruising speed in 463 km / h. One of the drawbacks of this power plant is costly maintenance and service.

During the three years of production, starting with the year 2012, 10 was built about aircrafts of this model, used by both private owners and for commercial purposes.
