Development of small-aircraft Oberlerchner JOB 15 began Austrian aircraft manufacturers in 1958 year, while originally intended to create a two-place glider, however, due to some technical problems in the final design stage, it was decided to make the optimization of the design of the aircraft, and to issue a light two-seater ( Triple later) of the aircraft.

By using low-cost materials, aircraft, made its first flight in 1960 year, proved to be very affordable, however, due to the restriction of its use, the aircraft did not become popular, and for the entire production cycle was built just 24 aircraft of this model.

His appearance aircraft Oberlerchner JOB 15 very much like a small motorized glider, however, experts believe that this is due mainly with the process of designing and experiments on giving the aircraft more aerodynamic shape, which ultimately is reflected in the increased maneuverability and speed of flight this model.

Initially, the plane Oberlerchner JOB 15 allowed to place in his cabin just two people - a pilot and one passenger, but, later, the aircraft design has been optimized, with the result that there was a possibility of placing here an additional passenger seat, but in the end it did not play great popularity. For cargo aircraft model Oberlerchner JOB 15 not suited, however, its design allows you to put on board a certain amount of baggage.

Powerplant Oberlerchner JOB 15 depending on the variant of the aircraft can reach a capacity of 95 hp to 150 hp Basic Double prototype aircraft has a piston-engined Continental C90-12F (95 hp), which in turn allows the aircraft to accelerate to a speed of about 200 km \ h. (Maximum flight speed), with a maximum flight range of about 880 km.
