As the basis for the development of the UTVA-60 aircraft, the Yugoslav aircraft manufacturers used the design of several light American aircraft, however, due to the careful processing, this model of the aircraft has extremely unique features in its appearance, as well as the technical component of the aircraft project.

His first flight of the prototype of the future aircraft, carried out in April 1959 years and due to the fact that the aircraft performance metrics aircraft shall be fully satisfied Yugoslav aircraft manufacturers, as early as next year, the aircraft was sent to the serial production, where he was for several years.

In addition to the civil aviation sector, aircraft UTVA-60 actively exploited, and the Air Force of this country that has been associated with high technical performance of the aircraft, in particular, large payload and flight velocity. To a greater extent the aircraft used for the transport of troops and transporting small loads, however, the use of the aircraft affected also perform patrol areas.

In the cockpit of the aircraft UTVA-60, depending on the modification and the actual destination, it can accommodate up to four people, including one pilot and three passengers. If necessary, the aircraft UTVA-60 can carry on its board loads a total weight of up to 668 kilos (including self-weight of the aircraft occupants in the cabin). Moreover, the aircraft can also be used as an agricultural aircraft or for the training of future pilots piloting skills.

Powerplant UTVA-60 model aircraft is a single piston aircraft engine brand Lycoming O-480-G1H6, able to develop traction in 270 hp, however, depending on the version and variant of aircraft, there may be used and other power plants as more or less power. Through the use of a powerful aircraft engine, aircraft UTVA-60 can accelerate up to speed in 252 km \ h. (The maximum rate of the basic version of the aircraft), and non-stop travel distances up to 780 kilometers.
