Beagle Terrier - British single-engine monoplane manufactured by «Beagle Aircraft Limited» in 60-ies of the last century.
Development of the aircraft Beagle Terrier began in late 50-ies of the last century, with the British aircraft manufacturers were able to develop a small multi-purpose light-engine monoplane used for the carriage of passengers (out of commercial operation), and for the transportation of small cargo total weight up to 363 kilos.

Initially it was assumed that the plane Beagle Terrier will not get great popularity among customers, but due to the small value of the aircraft, as well as simple and inexpensive maintenance, the aircraft continues to operate to this day, though, in fact, the model is considered obsolete.
His first flight of small-aircraft Beagle Terrier made in 1961 year, then almost immediately was put into production, where he stayed, in view of the emergence of modified versions to 1967 years.
On board the aircraft can accommodate one pilot and two passengers, and the model is very similar to earlier versions of the aircraft produced by the other British aircraft manufacturer, however, in terms of aircraft performance aircraft were highly variable.

As the power plant on the model of Beagle Terrier used inline four-cylinder piston aircraft engine de Havilland Gipsy Major able to develop power in 145 hp However, the power plant did not satisfy the majority of customers by the fact that the aircraft broke up only up to speed in 195 km \ h (the maximum speed of flight of the aircraft), while at the other aircraft of this era, the airspeed was much higher. Among other things, the maximum flight range of the aircraft Beagle Terrier is only 515 kilometers, which limits its use, with limited maximum flight range is mainly due to the technical characteristics of the power plant, which is why the British aircraft manufacturers even attempted to replace it.
In 1962 year, British aeronautical engineer presented a modified version, dubbed Beagle Terrier 2. This modification has not undergone major changes, mainly has been agreed with the international standards, which allows you to export the aircraft.
In 1965 year it has been a model of Beagle Terrier 3, which was more advanced and simple in terms of maintenance of the power plant Lycoming O-320-B2B capacity 160 hp, which greatly improved the number of aircraft performance parameters of the aircraft, including increased airspeed, increase the maximum range of destination and others.
