Danish aircraft builders model SAI KZ III was designed at the very beginning of the Second World War, while the project existed only on paper basis, and in fact neither built nor tested, which in turn did not guarantee the aircraft manufacturer success. Nevertheless, during the Second World War, under the leadership of German aircraft builders, the design of the aircraft was nevertheless created, and in September 1944 year was successfully tested, however, in fact, the aircraft was put into mass production only in 1946 year, where it was up to 1951 year , Until the need for an aircraft has practically disappeared.

One of the most striking deficiencies construction SAI KZ III aircraft is the fact that the wings are made with the use of several materials, which in turn does not provide sufficient strength, and this in turn affects the maneuverability of the aircraft, but at the same time, the plane of the The model has a low cost.




To the greatest extent plane SAI KZ III used by private owners to perform their own needs, mainly the flights for the transport of people and goods, but the aircraft among other things operated, and as a medical aircraft, but in this area it lasted only until 1976 years .
