Aircraft Fokker F.VII model was designed aeronautical engineer from Denmark to 1920 year. Initially, the aircraft was supposed to equip just one aircraft engines, however, as in this case, the plane carrying capacity was low, and the probability of failure of the power plant is large enough, later, aircraft manufacturers have agreed on the need for production trёhmotornyh aircraft.

Given the fact that the design of the aircraft began almost at the dawn of the era of aircraft construction, the design of the aircraft was very promising, which was mainly due to the possibility of transporting a large number of people or cargo aboard the aircraft, at a relatively high speed and at very long distances. The Fokker F.VII aircraft was also supposed to be used as an air vehicle for the transport of military cargo, which later was realized, however, to the greatest extent, this aircraft proved to be a civilian aircraft.

The first flight tests of the aircraft model Fokker F.VII been in 1924 year, and due to the fact that the aircraft quite successfully coped with them in the near future and has begun mass production of this model. Which was quite long - for the entire period of manufacture aircraft manufacturers over 250 aircraft were built (including modifications), of which, up to now, only very few have survived.

Fokker F.VII model aircraft crew consists of two people, but, in addition to the pilot and board mechanic on board their aircraft can carry up to 8 passengers, which is very effective. Among other things, the model aircraft Fokker F.VII can also be transported on its side and over 2 tons of payload, which is quite acceptable, particularly when taking into account the period of production of these aircraft.

Powerplant Fokker F.VII aircraft consists of a piston-type aircraft engine, however, the most common modification of the aircraft is equipped with three radial engines brands Wright J-5 Whirlwind, the power of each of which is 220 hp, which provides a high load capacity of the aircraft, as well as very acceptable speed 185 km \ h. (The maximum rate). Maximum range of flight of the aircraft is 1100 kilometers.
