Ryan Brougham aircraft began to develop in the year 1924, in this case, the main purpose of construction of the aircraft was a need to allow operation of aircraft transported on board his small group of people, in particular, we are talking about the use of aircraft in the field of passenger transport.

Thanks to the coordinated work of the engineers and designers of the company «Ryan» plane in 1927 year made its first flight, which was officially named the successful, in connection with which the aircraft was sent to the serial production, which enjoyed very great popularity with customers, as evidenced and corresponding to a large release of aircraft data - with 1927 1930 year for American aircraft manufacturers have been built 212 copies of the model aircraft (including prototype and modified versions).

In fact, Ryan Brougham plane can be attributed to the class of multi-role aircraft, because in addition to be carried on board an aircraft of people, this model can also be used to transport sufficiently large cargo, provided that their weight does not exceed 649 kg. However, it should clarify the fact that the transportation of goods on board the aircraft was only possible if only the pilot and one passenger on board the aircraft.

In the cockpit of the aircraft Ryan B linkedin can accommodate up to 5 people (including one crew member), which in turn made it possible to very effectively operate this aircraft on passenger airlines with a length of up to 1130 kilometers, which was superior to most passenger aircraft used at that time.

However, due to a number of problems, the production of aircraft of this model has been suspended, however, experts say that the aircraft could be produced more actively at least 2-3 years.

Depending on its modification, the Ryan B linkedin model can be equipped with a Wright J-5 piston engine with a power of 225 hp, or other piston power plants of both lower and higher power, which in turn allowed saving on the purchase of air vessel, but somewhat reduced its flight characteristics. The maximum flight speed of this aircraft is about 205 km / h, which is quite acceptable even by modern standards.
