Powerful and multipurpose aircraft was designed by US aircraft manufacturers in the early 70-ies, and the model was processed several times due to poor flight performance, particularly low speed and low maximum take-off weight. Ultimately, aircraft manufacturers have come to a consensus that the aircraft must be equipped with a powerful propeller aircraft engine and its design should allow to place on the board of at least 6 people.

In March 1975 years Bellanca Skyrocket II aircraft made its first flight, after which Ancha serial production of this model, which however, because of high prices and a large amount of time required to build it (about 1700 hours), has not found popularity. Over the entire period of the production of short, lasting less than a year, it was established 11 sets for self-assembly, while, at the moment we only know about 5 sold kits.
On board the aircraft Bellanca Skyrocket II 5 can accommodate passengers, and for the control plane requires only one pilot. Due to a large enough passenger capacity aircraft to be used for commercial purposes, thus, given the fact that the aircraft can cover distances up to 3700 kilometers, it can be operated on regional routes, and even an international air service.

The aircraft has a high maneuverability, and a sufficiently high speed of flight, which is 547 km \ h. (maximum speed of flight), and, mainly contributes to this powerful propulsion system provided by a piston aircraft engine turbocharged Continental GTSIO-520F, able to provide traction in 435 hp Nevertheless, despite the fact that the power plant of this type is extremely reliable, one of the biggest drawbacks is its expensive maintenance and service, which according to experts is also one of the reasons why this model has not become popular.
Subsequently, the model Bellanca Skyrocket II was partially redesigned and implemented under the name Bellanca Skyrocket III, although in fact no change aircraft has not undergone, particularly in flight-technical terms - has undergone only minor changes in the aircraft cabin.
