Multiple aircraft Robin HR100 was designed by French designers and technologists in 1966 year, moreover, the basic motive for the beginning of the design process of the aircraft served as a high demand in the multipurpose aircraft with low cost and relatively simple in terms of its maintenance.

In preliminary work, «Avions Pierre Robin» Guide French aircraft company intended to focus on creating Triple aircraft, but since this configuration could not meet all the needs of future customers, taking a gap between the quadruple and double planes, eventually it was decided to creating a four-seater aircraft.

The aircraft Robin HR100 thanks to the coordinated work of French designers and design engineers was not only a very attractive appearance, but in fact, a fairly high flight performance, including allowing it to operate an aircraft in commercial civil aviation.
