The new aircraft was intended primarily for private operation, which in the region could lead to the high popularity of aircraft in the aircraft industry, since in most cases it is the use of an airplane that can effectively move between small islands of a given region of the planet. For a number of reasons, the aircraft of this model could not provide its commercial application, which was mainly due to the presence of only one seat on board, however, despite this fact, the project was very promising, as evidenced by the fact that for the entire period The issue was built about 250 copies of this aircraft, which is actively continuing to be used and to this day.

Victa Airtourer aircraft fuselage has a compact design that provides it with excellent aerodynamics, good handling and high maneuverability, allowing including applied as a sports aircraft, helped by a fairly powerful powerplant.

The first flight of the Victa Airtourer aircraft took place in March of the year 1959, and due to the fact that the aircraft successfully coped with all the necessary tests, this project received a certificate enabling it to launch into mass production, which lasted for more than one year. Since 1967, the Victa Airtourer aircraft has also been launched by Aero Engineers Ltd. (AESL), a New Zealand air company, and the production here was no less loaded than in Australia, it was mainly due to the high demand among Consumers.
