Designing the Spartan Three Seater was started by British aircraft designers and designers in 1929, while the new aircraft was based on the rather popular Simmons Spartan model, which appeared a year earlier and became very popular among owners. Nevertheless, aircraft manufacturers from the UK partially optimized the appearance of the aircraft, removing unnecessary elements and providing a higher aerodynamic performance of the aircraft, and, to a large extent, expanded the functionality of this aircraft, making it quite in demand.

Initially it was assumed that the plane Spartan Three Seater will be executed in a monoplane configuration, however, the biplane design of the aircraft provided additional strength and rigidity, which in turn will give more stability at the time of the flight. Moreover, the British aviation specialists managed to expand opportunities of the aircraft, providing transportation on board up to three people at an affordable rate, which in turn are also allowed to carry on board and loads, although to a limited extent.

Despite the fact that the plane on its flight performance superior to the model on the basis of which it was created, the aircraft did not become much popular, and for the entire period of its production release of its creation was limited to only 25 aircraft.

On board the Spartan Three Seater aircraft can accommodate up to three people - a pilot and two passengers, while the aircraft can also take on board and up to 320 kilogram of payload (taking into account the weight of the on board three people). In the commercial sphere of its operation, the Spartan Three Seater aircraft was adapted very poorly, which was expressed to a large extent by a large distance following.

The power plant of the aircraft Spartan Three Seater consists of a piston engine Cirrus Hermes I (Cirrus Hermes II modification can be applied), the ability to develop traction in 120 hp, allowing the aircraft to the possibility of overcoming distances 420 kilometers with flight speed in 160 km \ h. (Cruising speed of repetition).
