Small-engine aircraft Meyers 200 developed by US aircraft manufacturers exclusively for use by private owners, however, the plane itself is a multi-purpose aircraft, which is mainly expressed in the ability to use it and to transport small loads and for use in sport aviation.

The plane began Meyers 200 1952 designed in the year, and in just a year 3 American engineers and designers have managed to build a quality and affordable aircraft, is actively used by even a 60-year-old age to the present day.

The aircraft has a good aerodynamic shape, which in turn gives it good handling and high maneuverability, allowing the aircraft to operate as a sports aircraft.

Despite the visually small dimensions of the Meyers 200 cabin, there is enough space to accommodate four people - one pilot and three passengers, or the equivalent amount of cargo that does not exceed the dimensions of the cabin, and does not exceed the maximum allowable load received on board the aircraft . The maximum range of the flight of this aircraft is 1930 kilometers, which in turn allowed to operate it in the commercial sphere, in particular, for the performance of excursion flights, use as an aerotax facility, etc.

The power plant of the Meyers 200 consists of one piston aircraft engine, which, depending on the modification, is capable of developing thrust up to 285 hp, which in turn provides the aircraft with high load-carrying capacity and flight speed. The basic prototype of the Meyers 200 is powered by a Continental O-470 piston engine capable of accelerating the aircraft to a maximum speed of 320 km / h. with a power of 235 hp In later versions, turboprop power plants are also used, however, due to the strong rise in the cost of production, such options are not very popular among owners.
