Developing air Viper Jet ship began in 1995, on the basis ViperFan model aircraft, which has become almost an unpopular because of its high prices and mediocre enough flight performance, which could not fully meet the future owners of the aircraft.

Due to the fact that the aircraft Viper Jet got a good aerodynamic shape is largely manifested its actual possibilities, which were much higher than the sports models, equipped with a piston or turboprop aircraft engine. In particular, the highest value of the acquired maneuverability of the aircraft, which allows the pilot to perform complex aerobatic stunts at high flight speeds.

His first flight of the aircraft Viper Jet model implemented in 1999, and a year later, the aircraft was formally presented, after which it began its serial production. Of course, called the aircraft Viper Jet blockbuster model will not work, because in fact, because of the high cost, in the world there are only a few private owners of this aircraft, but its flight-technical quality to some extent predispose a large popularity.

The cabin air Viper Jet ship can accommodate two people - as a rule, we are talking about the pilot and the passenger, at the same time and the design features of the aircraft, and its purpose, carrying on board the aircraft of any goods is not possible, which, incidentally, and not it was provided by specialists engaged in the development of this model.

Powerplant sport air Viper Jet vessel includes a turbofan aircraft engine of the brand General Electric J85, which provides aircraft thrust in kN 12,7., Which allows the aircraft to accelerate to speed in 805 km \ h. (Maximum value), and to overcome the distance to 1480 kilometers.

In 2005 year, the American aircraft manufacturers submitted a second version of the aircraft Viper Jet MkII, different from the first version of an improved aerodynamic shape and some significant improvements in the cockpit. aircraft design in general, has not undergone any changes.
