Development of the aircraft Taylorcraft F-21 conducted by American engineers on the basis of the model aircraft Taylorcraft F-19, is inherently an experimental version of the light aircraft. Plane Design Taylorcraft F-21 1978 was deployed in the year, and in fact, in two years, the American aircraft manufacturers managed to give high-quality and low-cost aircraft, which has found its extensive use in the private sector of civil aviation.

Despite the fact that the plane was a multi-purpose, the project has not found sufficient support from potential customers, which was mainly due to the fact that the aircraft could carry on its board of only two people, while the most attractive created quadruple aircraft. During its period of production, and the release of the aircraft continued on with 1980 1990 year, American aircraft failed to issue 43 aircraft.
