10-local aircraft GippsAero GA10 Airvan was developed by Australian engineers on the basis of a model Gippsland GA8 AirvanProduced since 2000 years, with the actual design of the aircraft was retained, while as flight performance improved significantly, making the aircraft more and more popular.

The first development aircraft GippsAero GA10 Airvan began in mid-2010 year, and, thanks to already have experience in the construction of aircraft of this type, the Australian design engineers were able to provide is completely finished model in 2012 year, thus creating a new, more effective and long-term aircraft in less than two years. Actual changes in the design of the aircraft GippsAero GA10 Airvan not undergone except for lengthening the bow and some increase in the length of the fuselage, which in turn allowed to take on board more people or cargo.

The most characteristic feature of the GippsAero GA10 Airvan is the use of a turboprop aircraft engine, which allows not only to develop increased thrust during flight, but in fact, to accelerate the aircraft to higher speeds - the cruising flight speed of this model is 278 km / h., While, how the maximum speed can reach values ​​of 320 km / h. Among other things, the power plant, consisting of one Rolls-Royce 250-B17F / 2 turboprop aircraft engine with a capacity of 450 hp. allows you to take on board the aircraft more payload, in particular, the payload of the GippsAero GA10 Airvan is 1084 kilograms, while in the previous version this figure was limited to only 817 kilograms.

By optimizing the design of aircraft GippsAero GA10 Airvan, on board can accommodate up to 10 people, including also a pilot, however, in the course of changes in the designers had to reduce some amount of the fuel tanks of an aircraft in mind that the maximum flight range was reduced to 1270 kilometers that other things did not affect the use of the aircraft in passenger transportation in local and regional routes.

It is expected that the year 2016, the aircraft will also be used for military purposes, replacing the less efficient model Gippsland GA8 Airvan.

During the period of 2012 2014 12 year it was built of aircraft models GippsAero GA10 Airvan, thus, the issue due to the high demand for this aircraft, and continues to this day.
