German aircraft builders have begun designing a single-engine multi-purpose aircraft model Hirth Hi 27 Acrostar in the second half of the 60-ies of the last century. The aircraft was positioned exclusively as a sports aircraft capable of performing aerobatic stunts. It was assumed that the aircraft would also be widely used as a personal aircraft, however, because of the functional characteristics of the aircraft, the aircraft could not attain high demand, and therefore the production of this model was very limited.

The aircraft Hirth Hi 27 Acrostar has compact dimensions of its fuselage, as well as a good aerodynamic shape that allows the aircraft to a high level of agility and good handling, which are necessary for sports aircraft.

Functionality Hirth Hi 27 Acrostar aircraft is very much limited, in particular, the presence in the cockpit only one place, as well as the impossibility of transportation of goods, have become a serious obstacle for the aircraft, and therefore for the entire short period of release of the German company «Wolf Hirth GmbH "it was built just 10 aircraft of this model.

The first airplane flight Hirth Hi 27 Acrostar in April 1970 years and due to the fact that all of the required tests were successful, and the deviations from the norms stipulated by aircraft manufacturers have been identified, the management of German companies suggested that the aircraft should attain a proper pop, and therefore the project was put into production.

Compact enough cabin aircraft Hirth Hi 27 Acrostar designed for only one pilot, however, stesnёnnost and discomfort for the pilot are not noted in this connection even flights to the maximum distance that make this model 620 kilometers, are quite acceptable. Due to the structure of reinforced fuselage and wings, the plane Hirth Hi 27 Acrostar is perfectly suited to perform aerobatic stunts at the same time, experts note a rather high level of safety in the operation of aircraft for these purposes.

For easy single aircraft, aircraft Hirth Hi 27 Acrostar equipped with a sufficiently powerful propulsion of the piston type, consisting of one aircraft engine brand Franklin 6A-350-C1, whose thrust is 220 hp, which allows the aircraft to reach a maximum speed of 350 km \ h., and perform flights at a sufficiently high altitude.
