Work on the design of small-aircraft Grob G 120 1996 began in the year. During this time, the German aircraft engineers managed to create a compact, easy single-engine aircraft, suitable for different tasks, particularly for passenger transportation in a private service for the training of future pilots, for use as a sports aircraft.

Through the use of modern light and durable material, experts have managed to create high-quality aircraft capable well to withstand both negative and positive high overload, which in turn due to the presence of productive aircraft engine, making it extremely maneuverable, even when flying at maximum possible for this model speeds .

His first flight model aircraft Grob G 120 1999 made in the year, and after some optimization almost immediately went into mass production, where he is today.

In addition to the use in civil aviation aircraft Grob G 120 widely used in Air Force of several countries, which operate primarily for training military pilots - according to 2015 years, the Air Force 6 the world used about 70 aircraft of this model.

Due to the small space inside the cabin of the Grob G 120 aircraft, only two people can be accommodated on board the aircraft, which, as it turned out later, is quite enough to interest private customers who actively use the aircraft for their own needs. This aircraft is not suitable for the carriage of goods, however, it has a luggage compartment, which actually allows the carriage of a small amount of luggage - about 80-100 kilograms.

As a power plant in the Grob G 120 aircraft, a piston aircraft engine with a capacity of 200 hp is used, which was later replaced by a more powerful one, capable of developing more thrust, and taking on board more cargo and accelerating to higher speeds. The maximum flight speed of the Grob G 120 model is 319 km / h. (depending on the modification), while the aircraft is designed for unhindered overcoming distances of 1537 kilometers.

During the period of the production of light-engine aircraft model Grob G 120, German aircraft manufacturers have also established, and two modified versions of the aircraft:

  • Grob G 120A - an improved version of the aircraft, equipped with a Lycoming AEIO-540-D4D5 aircraft engine with a capacity of 260 hp;
  • Grob G 120TP - Equipped with a modified version of the turboprop powerplant. Subsequently, the current version has been converted into a separate model of the aircraft.
