The aircraft Nord 3400 Norbarbe model became designed by the French in the mid aviarazrabotchikami 50-ies of the last century. The aircraft has broad functionality, which is why at the initial design phase of the aircraft, it was supposed to be used in civil aviation and in the military sphere.

The design of the air Nord 3400 Norbarbe model vessel performed in monoplane configuration with top wing that allows the aircraft to a large lifting force, however, to some extent reduces the maneuverability of the aircraft. Nevertheless, low maneuverability of the aircraft model Nord 3400 Norbarbe compensated sufficiently powerful propulsion, which is why an aircraft control data is not hindered.

The aircraft Nord 3400 Norbarbe has good aerodynamic shape, which gives it the ability to accelerate to high speed flight and reduced fuel consumption, making the aircraft highly cost-effective in terms of its operation.

His first flight of the aircraft model Nord 3400 Norbarbe made in January 1958 years and due to the fact that all test trials have been successfully completed, the project was prepared for mass production, which was launched in the middle of the same year. The aircraft has been very successful, as a consequence of the release period of the French aircraft manufacturers 131 aircraft of this model were built, of which up to the present period remained a few dozen aircraft.

In addition to the civil aviation sector, aircraft models Nord 3400 Norbarbe has also been actively involved in the military sphere, which is mainly used as a patrol, observation and training facilities, and, for a sufficiently long period.

The cockpit Nord 3400 Norbarbe can accommodate up to two people, including one pilot and one passenger, thus, the availability of space at the rear of the aircraft can carry in the cockpit also small loads that very effectively. Buddy the local management of the pilot and the passenger was allowed to use the aircraft and as the training of air tools.

The aircraft is equipped with Nord 3400 Norbarbe powerplant piston type brand Potez 4D34, who having thrust in 260 hp, the aircraft provides an opportunity to accelerate to a top speed of 240 km \ h., While the maximum range of the following aircraft is 1 thousand kilometers
