As a starting base for the design of the aircraft Nord N1101 Noralpha, French aircraft manufacturers have used a model aircraft Messerschmitt Bf 108 Taifun, which is actively used by the German military during World War II. However, the aircraft was supposed to better use as a civilian aircraft, and through the efforts of French aircraft manufacturers, the aircraft has undergone some important changes that will more effectively use this aircraft in the civil aviation sector.

In addition to the civil aviation, the aircraft Nord N1101 Noralpha models are also actively used in the military sphere, which has been used mainly either as training aids, or as a patrol aircraft, and. It is not in vain, as the plane had not only high speed of its flight, but also quite a large range of repetition, which is limited to the distance in kilometers 1200.

The first flight tests of the aircraft model Nord N1101 Noralpha underwent in 1944, however, for a number of reasons, the real production of aircraft was deployed only in 1946 - this was due to the need to optimize the design of the aircraft, and with some financial difficulties at the company "Societe Nationale de Constructions Aeronautiques du Nord ". Despite the fact that the Nord N1101 Noralpha aircraft was in production for only 4 years, in the period from 1946 to 1950, aircraft manufacturers built 205 aircraft of this model (including modifications), which indicates a clear success of the project.

At its board aircraft Nord N1101 Noralpha model can carry out the transportation of four persons, including one pilot and three passengers, and, in addition to the transport of persons, Nord N1101 Noralpha aircraft can also be used for transporting small loads, the only condition which is compliance with the size and exceeding of the maximum take-off weight of the aircraft installed, which is 1645 kg.
