The development of this aircraft began with French aircraft builders in 1992, while specialists managed to create an inexpensive aircraft, suitable mainly for private use. In fact, there is no exclusive design here, however, as French engineers note, this was the main reason for the low cost of the aircraft, which was supposed to attract at least several hundred customers, but in fact, from 1993 to 2012 year Only 35 realized planes are known, which demonstrates the apparent low popularity of the aircraft.

Because of the design of the aircraft, as well as its small size, the plane Fournier RF-47 has no multi-purpose - its main task is to transport people at distances up to 920 kilometers.

The cabin of the aircraft Fournier RF-47 allows you to place on board the aircraft of only two people, and, due to the limited internal space, as well as low-power powerplant weight to take on board the cargo limited 220 kilos, which actually makes a lot of two people on board.

Despite the fact that the aircraft was designed as a budget model, aircraft manufacturers from France largely took care of security committed by flight, in particular, the fuselage of the aircraft was well reinforced frame structure, and its resistance to positive and negative accelerations largely higher than other models of aircraft of this type.

As a power plant, a low-power piston aircraft engine Limbach L2400 is used here, capable of developing a thrust of 90 hp, which is very little, especially considering the time when this model was launched into mass production. Nevertheless, the Fournier RF-47 aircraft is capable of moving at fairly high speeds, in particular, the maximum flight speed of this aircraft is 270 km / h, which is mainly facilitated by a lightweight design and a good aerodynamic shape, which significantly reduces drag.

According to 2014 years, the issue of small-plane model Fournier RF-47 continues, however, due to limited demand, it is expected that in the course of 2-3 the next few years, the aircraft will be taken out of production because its release is not appropriate, especially in view of the emergence of new and more advanced models.
