Aircraft models Miles M.2 Hawk has a multi-purpose, and can be activated and as the training aircraft, and as a private aircraft, and that is a factor in a large enough demand for aircraft of this model - for the entire period of production aircraft manufacturers of the company «Miles aircraft Limited» was built about 120 aircraft, of which only a few copies survived until the present moment.

Multiple aircraft has a fairly compact dimensions of its fuselage, making it extremely maneuverable, however, open cockpit, does not allow the aircraft to move at high altitudes - an absolute ceiling of the aircraft is 3800 meters, and, this is due mainly to the safety of flight produced.
