It is this factor, determines the fact that during the entire period of American aircraft manufacturers 1327 aircraft of this model were built, which indicates a high level of popularity of this aircraft.

Stinson Reliant airplane has a fairly compact design of its fuselage, which provides a flexible, high-speed aircraft to their displacement, good aerodynamics, excellent handling and a high maneuverability. All these factors have provided the aircraft Stinson Reliant prospects, making it possible to actively apply it until 70-ies of the last century, although at the moment these aircraft also continue to be used, although to a greater extent this applies to private owners.

 The multipurpose aircraft was actively used as a passenger aircraft operating on local routes, used as a transport aircraft carrying cargo on board, and was used for training purposes in the air forces of several countries (USA, Canada, etc.). ), was used as a private aircraft, etc.

The first flight of the aircraft model Stinson Reliant was held in the 1933 year, in fact, over 2,5 years after the development of this aircraft and due to the fact that the aircraft has successfully coped with all the necessary trials and tests, the project was sent to the future and into production, where there was no means for one year.

Initially Stinson Reliant airplane was used actively in the field of civil aviation, while in the 1935, the aircraft is also interested and air forces of several countries, as a consequence, aircraft manufacturers of the «Stinson Aircraft Company» had to increase its production capacity, so as the demand has increased seriously in these aircraft.

Stinson Reliant aircraft can carry on its board until 5 people, including one pilot and four passengers (depending on the layout of the cabin) that provides enough effective use of this aircraft, both in private and in the commercial sphere of its application. Stinson Reliant airplane can carry on its board a payload mass of up to 520 kg, which is quite acceptable for direct operators.
