As a basis, aircraft manufacturers have used a series of the same type of aircraft, previously issued, in particular, model tests were conducted initially Rockwell Commander 680T that later, after a series of minor changes and has become a model Rockwell Commander 690 JetProp.

The Rockwell Commander JetProp aircraft is positioned exclusively as an administrative type aircraft, which to some extent limits its scope of operation, however, in addition to carrying out business transportation, the aircraft was also involved in the armed forces (equipped with specialized equipment) and as a tourist airplane. The popularity of the Rockwell Commander JetProp aircraft is very high - for the entire production period, aircraft builders from Rockwell Commander and Aero Commander Division, as well as the Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, built the 1121 aircraft (including modified versions).
