Talented French designers worked on the development of the aircraft, who provided the opportunity to operate this aircraft for a wide variety of purposes, subject to private, non-commercial operation. The design of the aircraft was carried out on the basis of the Jodel D.11 model, however, the aircraft received a number of significant improvements, allowing its more efficient use.

The cabin of the aircraft Jodel DR1050 Excellence allows you to place on board the aircraft up to three people, and, in fact, the plane was also suitable for the transportation of small loads, which due to its multi-purpose operation. However, the maximum flight distance of the French aircraft was limited 980 kilometers, it can be used not in all possible spheres of activity, however, in practice, it did not cause a negative.

The design of the airplane is an aircraft with low wing and fixed landing gear, which is one of the reasons for the increased drag when the flight. However, given the fact that during the entire period of production was built quite a large number of aircraft of this model, the development of the aircraft, given its fairly low cost, almost completely paid off.

It is necessary to clarify the fact that initially, the aircraft was issued a French aircraft manufacturer as already fully assembled aircraft, however, closer to 70-th years of the last century, the company «Jodel» came to the idea that to issue a manual for self assembly and the creation of aircraft, and, in fact, to build such an aircraft can be today - the approximate cost of guidance and drawings is about 600 euros.
