However, the main aim of creating a multi-purpose aircraft Tu-4 become a necessity in the development of light aircrafts designed for use in the commercial sector, in particular, model BT-4 was supposed to be a means of air taxis, and, on a plan aviarazrabotchikov, very effective and popular.

Nevertheless, the project of the aircraft Tu-4 has become very problematic. It was connected with quite a long period of development, which led to a rise in the cost of multipurpose aircraft, and the crisis situation in the country, but according to unofficial data, the aircraft model BT-4 yet made its first flight in May 2015 years, however, given the fact that the project has not yet entered into production, it is likely the creators of the aircraft faced with new challenges, it is quite possible financial and material plane.

According to officially published data, BT-4 model aircraft can carry out transportation on its board of four people, including the addition of one pilot and three passengers, which is very effective for the operation of the multi-purpose aircraft as an air taxi money. If necessary, the aircraft Tu-4 model unit can also be transported on its board, and a small amount of cargo, but its size and weight are subject to obvious limitations, in particular, depend mainly on the cabin size and the place where the goods will be located.

In addition to the scope of commercial use, this vehicle can also be activated and as a private aircraft, but rather the high cost of the aircraft, also greatly limits the applicability here of the aircraft.
