For the first time in the sky, the Stampe SV.4 model aircraft ascended in 1933, but because of the outbreak of the Second World War, in the pre-war period only 35 aircraft of this model were built, some of which were used in the military aviation sphere, and some Civil sphere. Since 1947, the production of Stampe SV.4 aircraft has been resumed, and due to their very good flying and technical qualities, the production of aircraft continued for many years - for the entire history of this model, 940 copies were built, of which until now survived A lot of aircraft in good operational condition (mainly post-war production).

Biplane Stampe SV.4 has an open cockpit, which can accommodate up to two people at the same time, due to a lack of sufficient free space, the aircraft can not be used as an aircraft for the transport of any goods, which is one of the negative aspects . As more aircraft has established itself as a private aircraft, however, operated by it and its main goal - training of future pilots.

The power plant of the Stampe SV.4 aircraft consists of one de Havilland Gipsy Major X piston engine (depending on the modification) with a capacity of 145 hp, which allows the aircraft to accelerate to its maximum speed of 190 km / h, and freely overcome maximum distances up to 420 kilometers, while the latter indicator was far from always satisfactory for the owners.
