However, due to a series of miscalculations in aircraft design, the model has not been able to become a multi-purpose in terms of its operational capacity, in view of which the aircraft released officially ceased to 1930 years.

aircraft design Timm Collegiate has an open cab, which is one of the reasons why the aircraft can not carry any loads. In addition, the passenger seat and the pilot's seat separated from each other, which also creates a disadvantage for the placing on its board cargo.
