Work on designing a light aircraft IAR-824 began Romanian design engineers in 1968 year, thus, the design of future aircraft several times radically processed until eventually got her on a valid residence. Initially, the plane had to be exclusively the status of the passenger aircraft, but eventually became a multi-purpose aircraft that according to experts, was to increase the demand there, which unfortunately did not happen.

The IAR-824 aircraft made its first flight in 1971, while the design of the aircraft was improved for another eight months, until the aircraft was officially certified in 1972. The IAR-824 entered production in 1973, however, it did not stay here for long - the production of aircraft of this model was completed due to low demand, and only 10 aircraft were built during the entire production cycle.

The IAR-824 aircraft is able to accommodate up to 6 people on its board, including also one pilot, which, according to experts, could allow this aircraft to be operated in the commercial sphere. Nevertheless, the small volume of fuel tanks did not allow long-distance flights - the maximum flight distance of this aircraft is only 900 kilometers, so there was no actual demand for the IAR-824 model. At the moment, it is known about the existence of only 6 aircraft of this model, each of which is used by private owners for their own needs.

Among other things, the IAR-824 aircraft is also used for training future pilots, as well as for accelerating gliders, although in fact, due to the extremely small output, this aircraft is very rarely operated in this area, although there are various kinds of prospects for this.

As a power plant on light-engine aircraft IAR-824, the Lycoming IO-540-C1D5 piston six-cylinder engine is used, which can develop tractive power in 290 hp, which in turn is very acceptable, especially considering the type of aircraft. Nevertheless, due to some design features of the aircraft, the aircraft can accelerate only to small speeds - the cruising speed of the flight is 180 km / h .. while the maximum is limited to 205 km / h. The simplicity in servicing the aircraft engine of the IAR-824 is also one of the advantages of this aircraft.
