The aircraft model Zivko EDGE 540 was designed by American aircraft manufacturers at the beginning of the 90-ies of the last century, and the development project primarily provided for the operation of this aircraft solely for sporting purposes, including for performing complex aerobatic tricks, however, in fact , The Zivko EDGE 540 aircraft also found wide application among private operators, however, in this case the sphere of real use of the aircraft was very limited, which is mainly due to especially Its design and technical device.

Multiple aircraft Zivko EDGE 540 has excellent aerodynamic shape of its fuselage, which is very typical for aircraft of this class, besides, good aerodynamics in addition to providing a higher airspeed, also provides the aircraft and very high levels of maneuverability and controllability, which does important for private owners of the model aircraft.

aircraft design Zivko EDGE 540 has extra reinforcement that ensures aircraft a high resistance to high positive and negative accelerations, while the cost of the aircraft is quite acceptable, which is the main factor as to why the aircraft Zivko EDGE 540 continue to produce active and until today.

Aircraft Zivko EDGE 540 rose for the first time in the air in 1993 year, and due to the fact that the aircraft very successfully coped with all the necessary tests, the project received a certificate of his life and in the same year was sent in mass production, which continues to be and at the moment, mainly due to the existing demand among buyers.
