The design of the Jurca MJ-5 Sirocco aircraft was carried out by the French designer Marcel Yurko, who was able, in a fairly short time (less than two years), to develop the design of a multipurpose sports aircraft capable of both transporting passengers and performing various kinds of aerobatic stunts.

His first flight of the aircraft \ this model has made in 1962 year, and after a few months, was sent into production. Where was even after the death of the French aviarazrabotchika, indicating that the high popularity of the aircraft, although due to limited production capacity, it was possible to build only 86 aircrafts of this model.

Aircraft Jurca MJ-5 Sirocco has a small size and good aerodynamic shape, which in turn allows you to secure and high flight speed and high maneuverability, which is very important for sports aircraft.

The cabin of the aircraft Jurca MJ-5 Sirocco designed just for two people, but even that was a good enough reason for the aircraft's popularity among private owners. Due to the presence of some free space and high load capacity for this type of aircraft, the aircraft can also carry on board and some of the payload, such as luggage, when we are talking about the private operation of the aircraft. For transportation of large cargo aircraft Jurca MJ-5 Sirocco due to the peculiarities of its construction is not adapted.

The power plant of the aircraft in the form of a four-cylinder piston aircraft engine model Lycoming O-320 allows us to develop traction in 150 hp, which is very little for sport aircraft, however, by optimizing the design of the aircraft, the aircraft is able to accelerate to maximum speed in 320 km \ h . Maximum range of flight model Jurca MJ-5 Sirocco is also very affordable, and is 1300 kilometers, while sports planes, the figure rarely goes 1000 kilometers.

In addition to the basic version, the French engineer also produced five additional variants of the aircraft:
