The design of the light-engine multipurpose aircraft of the Nord NC.853 model began by the French aircraft manufacturers from the Societe Nationale de Constructions du Nord company in the second half of the 40s of the last century. aircraft manufacturers came to the general opinion that when creating an aircraft, it is necessary to use the previously created base, in particular, we are talking about the design of an aircraft of the Nord NC.850 model. Nevertheless, only the design remained in common between the Nord NC.853 and Nord NC.850 aircraft models, however, in terms of flight and technical these aircraft differ from each other, although in fact they have the same operational purpose and scope of their application.

The aircraft model Nord NC.853 can be used as the training aircraft - this contributes to the presence of the plane coupled control system, which was sufficiently broad scope of its application, and, in both civil aviation and in the military sphere.

For added security, operational properties, aircraft manufacturers of the company «Societe Nationale de Constructions du Nord» reinforcing structure of the aircraft, which to some extent affected the weighting of the aircraft, however, to any problems in the maneuverability and control has not led.

Among other things, Nord NC.853 plane is a budget version of the aircraft compared with the aircraft Nord NC.850, however, this factor has led to a decrease in the speed of flight, but this is offset by the negative circumstance increased range of flights performed by that was more acceptable to the owners .

The first flight Nord NC.853 multipurpose aircraft in March 1948 years, and since all the test trials were held at the proper level, and deviations from the specifications and parameters established aircraft manufacturers, have been identified, the project was soon sent into production . Over the entire period of release, the French aircraft manufacturers 92 aircraft of this model were built (including modified versions), which certainly points to the success of the project.

The Nord NC.853 cockpit can accommodate two people, and, aircraft manufacturers managed to optimize the interior space of an aircraft cabin, which provided a more comfortable running flights, however, as before, the aircraft Nord NC.853 model for transportation of goods is not adapted.

The power plant of the aircraft represented by one piston aircraft engine brand Continental A-65, which is having a thrust in 65 hp can accelerate the aircraft to a maximum airspeed in 160 km \ h. The maximum range of the aircraft following this model is limited in distance 600 kilometers.
