Design of multi-purpose aircraft Russian aircraft started from the Samara company "Aircraft Manufacturing Company" Seagull "," in the middle of 90-ies of the last century. In this case, the aircraft is positioned as a multi-purpose aircraft is suitable for use as a means to transport people and goods, as a patrol and search tools, as well as a private jet.

Aircraft Corvette-LJ is made in the configuration monoplane with top of the wing, thus, the aircraft of this model has a quite compact dimensions of its fuselage, in particular, the plane length of the Corvette-LJ is 8,5 meters, while the wingspan is limited in size 10,7 meters that ensures the aircraft is quite acceptable maneuverability and controllability, which was very much appreciated by direct operators.

Thanks to the good aerodynamic shape, the plane Corvette-LJ has reduced drag, allowing the aircraft accelerated to sufficiently high speeds, providing an advantage over other manufacturers of aircraft of this type.

The first flight of amphibian Corvette-LJ was promoted to 2001 year, and due to the fact that the aircraft builders quality came to the design process of an aircraft, the aircraft could very well complete all the required tests, which is why, already in the same year, the project was aimed and mass production, which, however, was limited by the presence of demand, however, due to the fact that these aircraft continue to actively operate to this day, the release of the model Corvette-LJ continues.

At its board aircraft model Corvette-LJ is to transport three people, including one pilot and two passengers, and, the aircraft also found application in the military sphere, in particular, in 2006, the two aircraft were delivered to Cuba as a means of Coast guard and patrol. If necessary, the airplane Corvette-LJ can also be transported on its board and various loads, however, their size as well as weight, have a number of limitations.

Amphibian Corvette-LJ is equipped with two piston engines Jabiru 2200 brands, each of which is capable of pulling power in 80 hp, which is enough to ensure that the aircraft can accelerate to speeds in 180 km \ h. Maximum range of flight of the aircraft is 650 kilometers, which is quite acceptable.
