Easy aircraft models Fleet Model 1 was developed by the Canadian aircraft manufacturers in the first half 20-ies of the last century. In fact, the design of the aircraft was of a very important for the company «Fleet Aircraft of Canada», because of the high quality and skilled approach depended the fate of further work in the field of aircraft construction.

Aircraft Fleet Model 1 intended primarily for private use - this contributed to a very high reliability and good handling and very acceptable low price, but, among other things, the plane Fleet Model 1 intended use and as the training aircraft that was much more popular, and it was this factor explains the high popularity of this model.

Aircraft Fleet Model 1 has a fairly compact size, and a biplane configuration provides aircraft and greater structural strength, and great lifting force, which, incidentally, have a negative effect on the maneuverability of the aircraft. However, the good aerodynamics of the aircraft, lightweight design of the fuselage, as well as a very powerful powerplant makes this aircraft reliable enough, allowing among other things, to carry out its operation and as a sports aircraft, including the implementation of complex aerobatic stunts.

His first flight of the aircraft model Fleet Model 1 1928 made in November of the year, and due to the fact that all of the required tests were successful, and the aircraft characteristics fully satisfy Guide Aircraft Company, the project was sent to the serial production, which lasted for several years. Subsequently, the plane Fleet Model 1 has undergone a number of technical changes, which is why there was a perfect model of aircraft Fleet Model 2, being by its appearance is almost complete analog of the basic version of the aircraft.

On board his plane Fleet Model 1 can carry out transportation of two people - a pilot and one passenger, however, because of the open-cockpit biplane of this, the aircraft may not be used for cargo transportation.

The aircraft is equipped with a piston-type power plant, consisting of one radial aircraft engine brand Kinner K-5, which is having a thrust in 110 hp, can accelerate the aircraft to maximum speed in 175 km \ h., Which is quite acceptable in view of the production period, data planes. The maximum distance that the plane Fleet Model 1 can perform flights, limited distance in 560 kilometers.

Over the entire period of production, aircraft manufacturers have been built more than 500 aircraft of this model.
