Actually, the plane Fleet Model 7 Fawn is a revised version of a biplane previous release, and, technical adaptation has undergone not only the fuselage of the aircraft, but also its technical part, allowing more efficient use of aircraft of this model.

Like the previous model, the Fleet Model 7 Fawn aircraft has a multi-purpose purpose, in particular, it can be used as a private aircraft, as an air vehicle previously operated by air carriers for performing custom flights, as a means of air taxi, and, thanks to the dual control , As a training tool. Nevertheless, despite the fact that the period of production of the Fleet Model 7 Fawn aircraft was quite long, this aircraft could not find much popularity - for the period of production by the Canadian aircraft builders only an 71 aircraft was built, of which, up to the present moment, Only a few copies survived.

The aircraft model Fleet Model 7 Fawn underwent its first tested in 1930 year, however, due to the fact that the project has caused some doubts about the safety of conducted flights, the aircraft was further directed to revision, and therefore, the actual production of biplanes of the model was deployed only 1931 year.

On board his aircraft Fleet Model 7 Fawn can carry up to two people - a pilot and one passenger, while, for the transport of any goods other than mail, the aircraft can not be applied. The low popularity of this aircraft was also observed in the preparation of the future pilot schools, which was due to rising costs of aircraft, and, regards it as the actual cost of the aircraft, and aircraft technical maintenance.

Biplane model Fleet Model 7 Fawn equipped with power ustanvokoy consisting of a four-cylinder piston aircraft engine brand Kinner B-5, which is having a capacity of 125 hp, allowed the aircraft to develop a cruising speed of its flight in 140 km \ h.
