The aircraft of this model has become designed by Danish aircraft manufacturers at the end of 40-ies of the last century, at the same time, to ensure the rapid implementation of the project, as well as to reduce the actual the actual amount, the aircraft was designed on the basis of previously established aircraft manufacturers models, in particular, we are talking about airplane model SAI KZ VII, which proved to be quite effective earlier, however, require some modifications in its design and the technical part.

Aircraft SAI KZ X has a multi-purpose, in particular, the plane can be used for transportation on its carrying passengers and goods, as well as used in teaching and training purposes, used as an air patrol means, etc.

aircraft design SAI KZ X is made in the configuration monoplane with top of the wings, that by using sufficiently low power for the four-seater aircraft powerplant provides the aircraft greater lifting force, but at the same time deprives the design of high performance maneuverability, which, however, this aircraft not required.

The first flight of the multipurpose aircraft model SAI KZ X took place in September 1951 years and due to the fact that any deviation from the norms established by the aircraft manufacturers of the company «Skandinavisk Aero Industri» have been identified and all the necessary tests and trials have been completed successfully, have in 1952 year the aircraft was launched into serial production, which was very brief and lasted only until the year 1953 - 12 of aircraft were built for the entire release period, most of which to this day has not been preserved.

At its board aircraft model SAI KZ X is to transport four people, including the addition of one pilot, also three passengers, while, due to the peculiarities of the aircraft structure, the aircraft can also be employed for transportation of goods, the only condition which is compliance maximum set takeoff weight of the aircraft.

Multiple aircraft SAI KZ X is equipped with a piston aircraft engine brand Continental C-145-2, whose power is 145 hp Enough low-power for this type of aircraft powerplant provides the ability to perform the aircraft fly at a cruising speed of 180 km \ h., While the maximum range of its following limited distance in 540 kilometers.
