The development of light-engine aircraft began with Swedish aircraft builders in 1956, while engineers and designers pursued the goal of creating a multipurpose aircraft that could be used both by private owners and air schools for training future pilots. Nevertheless, private owners were not interested in buying this aircraft, and therefore the expectations of Swedish engineers were not fully justified, however, the aircraft found application in another area - in the air force of some states, including Sweden itself , For patrolling the terrain and conducting observational flights from the air.

The Malmo Flygindustri MFI-9 Junior aircraft has a fairly simple design, however, in view of this, its cost remained very low, while in reality the project had a very good potential.

In the cockpit of the aircraft Malmo Flygindustri MFI-9 Junior can accommodate only two people at the same time, space is very very limited, which is why flights on distances of over 500 kilometers deliver obvious discomfort, while the real possibility range of flight of the aircraft is 800 kilometers. Despite the fact that the plane Malmo Flygindustri MFI-9 Junior is capable of carrying on its board a cargo total weight of up to 235 kg, for transporting such it is not suited, owing mainly to the lack of space in the cabin.

The most widely used aircraft Malmo Flygindustri MFI-9 Junior got it in aero clubs, which, despite its almost 50-years of age, and continues to operate today.

The power plant of the Malmo Flygindustri MFI-9 Junior aircraft is represented by the Continental O-200 A piston engine, capable of developing 100 hp thrust, which allows the aircraft to accelerate to a speed of 215 km / h (cruising flight speed). The power plant of the aircraft is highly reliable and quite simple in terms of its maintenance, which does not cause financial costs when operating this aircraft.
