The beginning of the development of the aircraft Grob G 120TP was due to the need to create high-quality and multi-purpose aircraft suitable for private use as well as for the training of future pilots. Thanks to innovative development of German engineers from the company «Grob Aircraft» managed to create a complete aircraft, thus satisfying the above conditions.

His first flight of the aircraft model Grob G 120TP implemented in 2010 year, and, aeronautical engineer later reported that in fact, they were able to create high-quality aircraft is mainly based on the version of the aircraft Grob G-120, however, some changes obviously were made in including both technically and in design.

The cockpit of the Grob G 120TP is designed for two people - usually it's either a pilot and an instructor, or a pilot and a passenger if the plane is operated by private owners. The maximum range of the flight of this aircraft is 1074 kilometers, which is quite acceptable for schools for training pilots, and for private owners. For the transport of goods, this aircraft is not suitable mainly because of the limited free space in the cabin. Despite the fact that the Grob G 120TP airplane can be positioned as a civilian aircraft, it is rarely used in private operation, and often it is associated with very high cost and expensive maintenance.

The power plant of the aircraft model Grob G 120TP presented powerful turboprop aircraft engine Rolls-Royce M250-B17F, with output power of 456 hp, which in turn allows the aircraft to accelerate to the speed of 435 km \ h. (cruising speed of flight). Through the use of turboprop aircraft capable of quickly gaining speed, and easily overcome even high positive and negative overload, which, in fact, makes it sporty and high quality aircraft.

In addition to the civil aviation, the aircraft Grob G 120TP also actively used for training military pilots, in particular, the use of the aircraft is practically allows to learn the basic techniques of management of military jets.

Over the entire period of production from the 2010 2015 the end of the year, aircraft company «Grob Aircraft» produced 87 airplanes of this model, which indicates a high enough demand for them, and high efficiency.
