French aeronautical engineer embarked on the drafting of a multipurpose aircraft model Nord NC.850 in the first half 40-ies of the last century. The aircraft was originally intended exclusively for use in civil aviation, and later, that aircraft has also become very actively involved in military aviation, which led to the popularization of the big plane models.

Despite the relatively small design of the aircraft, the Nord NC.850 aircraft has extensive functionality, in particular, this aircraft can be used for training purposes, as a private airplane intended for transporting people, as an observation and patrol aircraft and . The compactness of the design of this aircraft provides the aircraft with good aerodynamics, which is very important, since using a rather low power plant, this aircraft has the ability to develop a very high flight speed.

The first flight of the aircraft Nord NC.850 model in November 1946 years. Because aircraft designers of the company «Societe Nationale de Constructions Aeronautiques du Nord» qualified and highly responsible attitude to the process of the development of this aircraft, the aircraft successfully able to pass all the tests, so that, in the 1947 year has been launched and serial production of the model .

The cabin of the aircraft Nord NC.850 has sufficiently compact that allows to stay on board only two people - one pilot and one passenger. Due to extreme compactness, transportation is not possible in the cabin of an aircraft any goods, which to some extent limits the operational capabilities of the aircraft.

Available in Nord NC.850 twin plane aircraft control system allows you to operate this model aircraft as an educational and training tool that provides a broad scope of application of this model.

Power plant multipurpose aircraft model represented by a single piston engine aircraft brand Minie 4.DC.32, which is having a traction capacity of 80 hp, which is very little for a fairly heavy fuselage of the aircraft. Through the use of this power plant, the cruising speed of the aircraft is 145 km \ h., At the same time, the maximum range of the aircraft following the limited distance in 500 kilometers.
