Small ultra-light aircraft model Flightstar apparatus began to develop American aircraft in the first half 80-ies of the last century. The main purpose of the development of this aircraft, was the need for the creation and promotion of small private aircraft used exclusively for the needs of the future owners.

Flightstar aircraft design has quite simple, and in fact has no superfluous elements, consisting of a frame on which are fixed the basic elements of the aircraft, including aircraft engine, wings, landing gear, and a place for a pilot. Subsequently, the aircraft design was somewhat improved and strengthened, however, that the initial project allows the maximum to reduce the cost of the aircraft, which was the reason for the great popularity of this aircraft means.

For the first time in the air plane model Flightstar rose in 1987 year, and due to the fact that the aircraft performance metrics aircraft coincided with the expectations of developers, the project was launched in serial production, which was over 22 years - the period for 1987 2009 year.

The original design of the Flightstar allowed only one person to be accommodated on board the aircraft, however, after the improvements, two-seat modifications subsequently appeared, which led to a greater popularization of this aircraft. Nevertheless, despite the fact that in later versions of the aircraft there are two places, transportation of any cargoes on board the aircraft is not possible, which is primarily due to the low-power power plant and features in the design of the aircraft.

Depending on the aircraft, at Flightstar plane can be used as piston aircraft engines, and electric motors that provide the ability to set the aircraft thrust from 26 hp to 60 hp, which accordingly affects the maximum flight speed, which in use of productive aircraft engine, can make up to 160 km \ h.
