In civil aviation, the IAR-823 was primarily used by private owners for their own purposes and needs, as well as by the owners of pilot training schools - the aircraft proved to be very well-behaved thanks to the dual control, as well as a small cost, which in fact was much lower than From foreign aircraft manufacturers. On board the aircraft can accommodate only two people, however, this did not create big problems for customers, because among other things, the aircraft was also suitable for transporting various kinds of cargo with a total mass (taking into account the mass of the pilot and the passenger (cadet)) to 600 kilogram . Despite the fact that the aircraft is capable of carrying out long-distance flights at distances up to 1800 kilometers, in the commercial sphere this aircraft was not used for the above reasons.
