The first development of the Titan Tornado aircraft started by American aircraft engineers in 1990. The main design project was prepared by John Williams, who intended to design a light and multi-purpose aircraft that could be used primarily in the private sphere of civil aviation. The American designer assumed that the aircraft would not be in demand due to its very mediocre flight performance, but in reality, the aircraft has gained quite a lot of popularity, which was explained by the rather attractive appearance of the aircraft and its low cost.

Since the Titan Tornado aircraft project was developed over four years, and fats is very expensive, the final decision was intended to carry out the production of the aircraft as a kit for self-assembly, which in turn would minimize the cost of the work and increased demand among potential customers. Aircraft manufacturers have taken into account the fact that the assembly of the plane should not take a lot of time, and therefore made the unification of the main parts of the aircraft, thereby reducing assembly time to a minimum.

Titan Tornado aircraft has a compact design that provides high maneuverability of the aircraft and good controllability, however, the use of low power propulsion here, the aircraft can not be used as a sports aircraft.

The cockpit Titan Tornado can accommodate one to two people, which depends mainly on the version of the aircraft. Because the free space inside the aircraft cabin is largely limited, and the aircraft has a minimal capacity for the carriage of goods not board, as a vehicle for the transport of cargo aircraft can not be applied.

The power plant of aircraft Titan Tornado, depending on version can be equipped with a piston aircraft engine thrust from 28 hp to 120 hp, respectively, has a significant impact on the speed performance of the aircraft. Basic production version of the aircraft is equipped with the Rotax aircraft engine capable of developing 277 28 hp power, which ensures the aircraft the ability to accelerate to maximum speed in 115 km \ h.
