The main reason for the development, design and the subsequent release of the aircraft Beagle Airedale was a need for the development of aviation industry in the UK, which in turn should be allowed to compete with small-engine aircraft of US manufacture which were very popular in Europe.

The first attempts to create a light aircraft were made at the end of 50-ies of the last century, at the same time, partly as a basis for a new model formed the development of American aircraft manufacturers, which mainly affected the aircraft design, however, the rest of the plan, the British aircraft builders have expressed technical initiative and in essence, we made a multipurpose aircraft that is suitable for the transport of persons, and for the transportation of goods. Nevertheless, the release of Beagle Airedale aircraft model has been very limited - only 43 units have been built for all the time, some of which continue to operate to this day.
On board the Beagle Airedale aircraft can accommodate one crew member and three passengers, which in turn allows the aircraft to operate commercially on routes small extent. In addition, the easy-motor aircraft is suitable for transportation of goods, in particular, the maximum payload is placed on board an aircraft is about 511 kilograms (excluding the weight of the pilot and passengers).

Reciprocating air-cooled four-cylinder aircraft engine Lycoming O-360-A1A capacity of 180 hp powerplant is the aircraft, while, thanks to this, the aircraft is capable of cruising speeds of up to 214 km \ h, and travel distances of up to 1,5 thousand kilometers . In addition, this model is available and the unit modification, equipped with propulsion Continental GO-300, which provides better traction and speed of the aircraft, allowing it to disperse 245 km \ h (maximum airspeed).
Beagle Airedale aircraft was discontinued in the year 1965, in this case, due the closure of production was mainly to the lack of sufficient demand - the current model was popular only in small numbers, and in addition, as an export is not suited for a number of technical reasons. At the same time, in the middle of the year 2014, 32 is in operation of the aircraft of this model.
