During the design to American design engineers had a task to develop the postal aircraft, suitable mainly to transport small in its volume and weight of the goods, however, thanks to a qualified approach, aircraft manufacturers have managed to build a multi-purpose aircraft, found application as in its immediate purpose and private use, where the aircraft could be used to transport both people and goods.

Work on the creation of a model aircraft Ryan M-1 1923 began back in the year, and just three years, despite the rather weak development of aircraft building sphere, experts managed to produce not only finished the design of the aircraft, but actually implement it on the first flight.

The design of the aircraft Ryan M-1 has quite bad in terms of aerodynamics, the shape, which in turn affected the management and maneuverability of the aircraft, but, nevertheless, the plane was used extensively until the early 60-ies of the last century. It is necessary to clarify that the aircraft production during Ryan M-1 was very short-lived, and all the time only 36 aircrafts were produced, of which, according to the year 2010, 2 were in operation instance.

In the cockpit of the aircraft Ryan M-1 can accommodate up to three people, including one pilot and two passengers, at the same time, passenger aircraft depends primarily on the use of the aircraft, in particular, if the aircraft were to be used exclusively for the carriage of mail, the in the cockpit, only one pilot could be, however, when it came to passenger transportation, the on board could accommodate two passengers.

Despite the fact that the Ryan M-1 model was launched in 1926 year, it uses a powerful piston-type power plant consisting of one Hispano-Suiza 8A aircraft engine with an output of 150 hp, which in turn provided the aircraft The machine has high load capacities and a traveling speed of about 200 km / h. The maximum range of the aircraft was rather small and amounted to only 640 kilometers, which, however, did not bother future owners. In some cases, the Ryan M-1 instead of the Hispano-Suiza 8A aircraft engine could be equipped with a less powerful powerplant, however, it comes soon only about single modifications.
