The first attempts to design an aircraft model Piel Emeraude been taken 1950 year, however, initially aircraft designer has been very difficult to make a start on a project, the more so, the plane was supposed to produce only for self-assembly, which is why the time spent was required surpass high enough lёtno- technical performance and minimum cost.

Ultimately aircraft Piel Emeraude got very sleek aerodynamic shape, which, in turn, with a relatively small overall dimensions make it possible to aircraft not only pretty fast, but also agile, which subsequently made him a multi-purpose aircraft, suitable mainly for private use.

The cabin of the aircraft Piel Emeraude has a fairly compact size and allows to stay on board just two people - a pilot and a passenger, thus, due to the design features, the carriage in the aircraft any goods, except for a small luggage is not possible. Nevertheless, the history of its operation plane Piel Emeraude was used for various purposes, in particular to carry out passenger transportation, to train future pilots piloting skills as a sports aircraft, and others.

Powerplant model Piel Emeraude consists of a single piston engine, which, depending on the modification can develop traction from 65 hp Up to 160 hp, which accordingly influences a whole range of flight performance characteristics, including speed, load capacity, maximum flight altitude, and the like. The basic production version of the Piel Emeraude aircraft is equipped with the Continental C90 aircraft engine capable of developing power in 95 hp, and accordingly accelerate the aircraft to a speed of 200 km / h. (Cruising speed of flight). Sufficiently acceptable is the maximum flight range of this aircraft, which, depending on the aircraft version, is up to 1000 kilometers.
