The aircraft of the Nord 1200 Norecrin model began to be designed by French aircraft engineers back in the pre-war period, but with the outbreak of World War II, all developments were curtailed and the aircraft could enter production only after the end of hostilities. Its multipurpose designation made it possible to operate the aircraft as in civil aviation, for the needs of which this project was developed, in the military, however, the most widespread aircraft, of course, received from private owners, where, despite its more than 70-year history, continues to be used to this day.

Initially, the aircraft model Nord 1200 Norecrin had to be triple, however, at the end of the Second World War, the French aircraft manufacturers have come to believe that the expansion of the aircraft functional capabilities will make it more popular, and since in essence the technology was ready, the design itself aircraft took only re-optimize, after which the aircraft was put into production.

Its first flight Nord 1200 Norecrin aircraft carried out in December 1945 years, thus, the model has a high flight performance and are reasonably good reliability, it was much higher and therefore the demand in the aircraft than expected aircraft manufacturers of the «Nord Aviation».

Depending on the modification, in the Nord 1200 Norecrin aircraft can accommodate up to 3 4 people (including the pilot), while, the aircraft had a good maximum flight range that also allows its use in the commercial sector of civil aviation. Furthermore, if necessary, the aircraft Nord 1200 Norecrin can also be transported on its board, and a small amount of cargo the total weight of up to 398 kilos (depending on the version of the aircraft).

The power plant of the base prototype of the Nord 1200 Norecrin aircraft consists of a Renault 4Pei piston engine with a power of 140 hp, however, in later versions, French engineers also used more efficient piston aircraft engines, which provide the aircraft with a thrust development of up to 180 hp, which accordingly influenced the flight performance. The maximum flight speed of the Nord 1200 Norecrin model is 280 km / h, and may vary depending on the power plant used.
