The aircraft of this model was developed by designer George Pereira, and, it was assumed that the aircraft will arrive exclusively for private operation, however, is in the final stage, it was decided that the aircraft assembly will engage itself for the future owner of the attached plans, drawings and manuals for assembly.

The aircraft model Osprey Aircraft GP-4 has a modern design and a very small footprint, making it agile enough to turn and can be used when performing aerobatic stunts. Despite the use of enough materials available, aircraft Osprey Aircraft GP-4 can withstand extremely high overload, with both negative and positive, which in turn makes it also quite reliable in terms of its performance properties.

In addition to using this aircraft for private purposes, the aircraft is also actively used as a means of sports aviation, which is facilitated by good speed indicators. It should be clarified that the potential customers of this aircraft were not embarrassed by the fact that the aircraft needed to be independently constructed based on the available instructions and drawings, however, by its nature, this aircraft was not widely used.

aircraft cabin is designed for placement on the board of two persons, which is a rather low figure, in this case, at its core, is useful to take on board the plane load is quite low - 335 kg, which does not allow to carry on the plane are any loads, however, thanks the presence of special luggage, owners can take a certain amount of it required at the time of flight of things.

The power plant of the aircraft Osprey Aircraft GP-4 consists of one four-cylinder aircraft engine Lycoming IO-360-A1A capacity of 180 hp that provided enough light aircraft design, allows us to develop an air speed of about 410 km \ h. (Maximum airspeed), and to overcome the distance to 950 kilometers, which is also an acceptable indicator for the owners of the aircraft.

One is of the most negative aspects of operation of the aircraft is the fact that the aircraft assembly requires about 3-4 thousand hours, of course, can lead to the fact that the assembly of aircraft spread over several years, however, quite reasonable price, as well as quite simple maintenance can compensate for such time-consuming.
