For the first time in the air plane Rearwin Skyranger rose in 1940, after which it was almost immediately put into production, which was up to 1947 years (the last aircraft manufacturer Rearwin Skyranger model aircraft company was «Commonwealth»).

Despite the fact that the first tests of a light multi-purpose aircraft Rearwin Skyranger ended at the moment the height of World War II, aircraft production not been terminated in connection with military actions, however, due to financial problems at the company «Rearwin», the issue was more It is hindered, and therefore the construction of the aircraft since 1942 years took aircraft company «Commonwealth».

The cabin Rearwin Skyranger aircraft can accommodate up to three people, including the pilot and two passengers and that, in turn, allowed the plane to operate, even for commercial purposes, mostly on local routes. In addition, if required, the aircraft can also be used to transport goods up to a total weight of 320 kilos (including self-weight of the pilot and possible passengers), however, due to the relatively weak powerplant, aircraft used for these purposes are rare.

Thanks to a good aerodynamic shape of the fuselage of the aircraft, the plane Rearwin Skyranger has high maneuverability and can accelerate to speeds of about 185 km \ h.

Power plant multipurpose aircraft consists of a piston aircraft engine with a capacity of Continental C85 85 hp, which is quite a bit for the type of aircraft, however, at the same time, the aircraft can accelerate to speeds is quite satisfactory, and to overcome the distance to 965 kilometers. Aircraft Engine has a high reliability and, as a rule, quite simple in its service and maintenance.

According to official data, in the year 1947, 7-for summer release 275 instances of aircraft were built, some of which continue to operate to this day (according to the order of 2014 26 aircraft of this model).
