The development of the aircraft OMAC Laser 300 began to lead in the late 70-ies, at the same time, the American aircraft designers have recreated a very original design of the fuselage, practically, which had no analogues in the world.

The aircraft OMAC Laser 300 has two pairs of wings - the first of them is located in the forward fuselage of the aircraft, and performs mainly the function of stabilizing, while the other is located in the tail section, which is not visually, and the tail function is performed by special formoobrazovanny profile wings.

The power plant of the aircraft OMAC Laser 300 is located in the tail section of the aircraft, and unlike most light aircraft, it performs not a pulling, but a pushing function, which requires some skills in controlling the aircraft on the ground surface. As the power plant on an OMAC Laser 300 aircraft, a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-135A turboprop aircraft engine is used, providing thrust to the aircraft in 750 hp, which naturally allows the 6 aircraft to accelerate to high speeds - the maximum flight speed of the OMAC 300 is XUMUMUM. h, in this case, the aircraft is able to cover the distance to 495 kilometers.

Initially, at the stage of designing the aircraft to be fitted with its two power plants - pulling and pushing, but later on it was decided to abandon iz-za lack of expediency in the second aircraft engines as a kakim-libo significant improvements of performance it would not It led.

On board OMAC Laser 300 7 can accommodate up to people - two crew members and five passengers, which is quite acceptable given the fact that the aircraft belongs to the class of aircraft of an administrative type. If necessary, inner salon can be adapted for a particular customer, however, given the fact that only three aircraft, of any variety has not been done in the salon variations were built during the entire production period.

The aircraft OMAC Laser 300 has high maneuverability and good handling, at the same time, for the entire period of operation of the aircraft of any state of emergency was not related to the aircraft device detected.

In the middle of 90-ies specialists from the US aircraft company «OMAC» attempted to restart the production of aircraft of this model, however, for a number of unexplained reasons, the project was postponed.
