The first development of turboprop aircraft M-101T Gzhel began back in the year 1989, in this case, in the course of creating a project for the future of the aircraft, the Russian aircraft designers and engineers repeatedly reworked the project, while in the year 1995, the aircraft did not make its first flight.

Despite a great promise of the aircraft, its release today is officially terminated, which in turn is associated with a number of some financial problems and low demand for aircraft among customers. During the short period of production it was built just 26 aircraft of this model, including 4 22 prototype and production aircraft.

In the design of the aircraft of this model, it was assumed that its main purpose will be operational in the field of business aviation, however, among other things, the aircraft began to operate and flying school, and even as a means of air taxi, and rather not bezperspektivno.

If necessary, the aircraft can also carry and transport small loads at distances of up to 1410 kilometers, which is quite acceptable, especially taking into account the actual cost of the aircraft. If necessary, the aircraft cabin can be trimmed in accordance with the wishes of the customer.

Aircraft M-101T Gzhel has good agility and good handling that usually does not cause problems during its operation.

A single Walter M601F aircraft turboprop engine is used as a power plant, which, when installed in the bow of the aircraft, is capable of developing 760 hp. The maximum flight speed of the M-101T Gzhel aircraft is 450 km / h, which is more than enough considering the maximum flight distance, as well as the actual scope of this aircraft.
