Designing an aircraft model L-44 conducted by Russian aircraft manufacturers is actually based on the multi-purpose amphibian A-42, which proved to be a very promising project, but require some optimization in order to promote among consumers.

In terms of its design, amphibious aircraft model L-44 practically has not undergone significant changes - aircraft manufacturers to some extent improved the aerodynamics of the aircraft. Adapted wing profile and have more number of minor changes, however, in the flight-technical point of view, the changes were more vivid. In particular, the most significant is the use of a powerful propulsion. which provides multi-purpose aircraft, heavy-duty, the ability to accelerate to higher speeds and others.

Aircraft A-44 designed to operate exclusively in the civil aviation sector, however, the aircraft can be used not only in the commercial sector, where it is mainly operated for the carriage of passengers and goods, as well as for conducting patrol work, but also as a private air the ship, however, is rather high cost of the aircraft, which, depending on the configuration varies from up to 10 11 million rubles, somewhat limits the demand for aircraft of this model.

Due to the fact that during the tests and trials of the aircraft model L-44 any visible and significant problems have been identified, the project has been successfully put into production, where due to the presence of a small demand, the project continues to be to this day, however, the issue of amphibious aircraft is limited to only a few instances a year and depends mainly on the volume of demand.

At its board a multipurpose aircraft L-44 model machine can carry out transportation of four persons, including the crew consisting of 1-2 people (allows for the control plane with one pilot) and 2-3 passengers, however. The aircraft L-44 most used for the transport of cargo on its board, and, in this regard, the aircraft is more efficient than conventional aircraft. So how can land on the water surface, which ensures the applicability of the aircraft in remote areas.

The aircraft model L-44 equipped with two reciprocating four-cylinder engine brand Rotax 912 UL, each of which has a thrust of 115 hp, which in turn provides the ability to disperse the aircraft to maximum speed in flight in 220 km \ h., At the while the maximum range of the aircraft following the limited distance in 1600 kilometers.
