The design of the light multi-purpose sports airplane was started by German aircraft builders in the middle of the 80-ies of the last century. Initially, the new aircraft had to have a very limited scope of application, in particular, the aircraft had only a sporting purpose, but later the aircraft designers were able to optimize the design of the aircraft, thereby reducing the final cost of the aircraft, and ensuring popularization among private owners where this aircraft The device could be used as an air-source for the needs of the direct owner.

The compact dimensions of the aircraft fuselage, as well as the low weight of the aircraft, the aircraft provides a very good control and maneuverability, which is very important for sport aircraft, as when performing aerobatic stunts, requires accuracy and high speed.

Its first test flight of a prototype of the future of the aircraft took place in May 1988 years, and in fact due to the fact that there were no deviations from the norm aircraft manufacturers has not been fixed, the project was able to successfully pass all required tests as a consequence. At the end of the year 1988 project went into production, where, due to the rather high popularity, continues to be to this day.

The cabin of the aircraft models Extra EA-300 has a fairly compact dimensions, allowing to stay on board only two people - one pilot and one passenger. The aircraft also has a system of dual control, which allows to use the aircraft as a teaching and training tool, however, due to a large enough airspeed, operation of the aircraft for such purposes is carried out exclusively by pilots who already have a big enough aircraft management experience of the type.

For a number of technical and design reasons, the aircraft Extra EA-300 can not be used for transport to its board of any of the goods - this is due to primarily the small size of the internal space, and a very limited carrying capacity of the aircraft.
