The Rockwell Commander 700 model aircraft is an administrative type aircraft, used, as a rule, to carry out business transportation. Work on its design was deployed by American aircraft builders at the beginning of the 70-ies of the last century, and it was assumed that due to the rather low cost, the project could become very popular among future operators, but due to low flying performance, the aircraft and Could not become in demand. However, in addition to the business transportation business, Rockwell Commander 700 also later became a tourist aircraft, and, quite effectively, however, due to the discontinued production, its operation in this area of ​​civil aviation is very limited.

Due to the presence of powerful piston engines, as well as in view of the factors that the fuselage of the aircraft has excellent aerodynamic shape, Rockwell Commander 700 model aircraft has a very acceptable figure maneuverability, which is also in a certain way has a beneficial effect on the rate of its management.

The first flight of an administrative type aircraft Rockwell Commander 700 took place in November 1975. In the course of the tests and tests carried out, the aircraft very successfully demonstrated its capabilities, which is why it received a certificate and since 1976 it began to be mass-produced. The production period of the Rockwell Commander 700 was very short - for the entire production period, 49 aircraft of this model (including modifications) were built, however, even despite more than 40 years of age, the aircraft of this model continue to be actively operated to this day ...

On board the aircraft Rockwell Commander 700 can accommodate up to six people, including 1-2 crew members (allowed aircraft control if there is only one pilot) and 4-5 passengers, thus, interior layout remains unchanged, while its design allowed to change at the request of the future owner. For transportation of any cargo Rockwell Commander 700 aircraft adapted very poorly, however, additional equipment can be installed on board, which makes it possible to operate the aircraft for any particular purpose.
