The production of this aircraft was initiated jointly with the Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair II model, and the developments were carried out independently on the common base of the Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I model, which was the first in the family of these light-engine aircraft. A distinctive feature of the model Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair III and Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair II is the location of the seats in the cockpit, while in the Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair III version due to the increased space in the rear of the aircraft, it was possible to take on board some useful cargo, in particular , To the greatest extent it is a matter of baggage, since the aircraft has proved itself to a greater extent in private operation than as a sport aircraft.

The fuselage of the aircraft has been further enhanced, due to which the weight of the aircraft increased, however, due to this, on board Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair III could take more cargo, and in addition, it has also contributed to enhanced safety during flight at high speeds.

As compared with the models Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I и Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair II, This aircraft has greatly increased the speed of movement, however, in comparison with the version of the Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair II reduced the maximum flight distance due to the installation of the fuel tanks of smaller volume.

As the power plant in the plane model Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair III air-cooled six-cylinder uses a piston aircraft engine Lycoming IO-540-K1H5, capable of developing power 300 hp The maximum flight speed of the aircraft reaches 467 km \ h., Which greatly superior to other models of light-engine aircraft of this type. Among other things, thanks to the powerful engine, the aircraft is free to overcome the distance to 2092 kilometers that satisfies most customer requirements.

Among other things, Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair III can also be used to train future pilots, which largely contributes to the presence here of the paired control, however, due to the fact that the aircraft accelerates to high speeds, the aircraft is a model flying schools hardly exploited.

Over the entire period of production from the middle of the year 1989 2014 years 402 was built aircraft of this version, in this case, due to the existing demand, the issue continues to this day.
