The first development on the creation of aircraft Beriev Be-103 Snipe began in the first half of 90-ies of the last century, at the same time, Russian aircraft designers have created a fundamentally new design, different from the other models of its own production. The main and fundamental difference of the aircraft is the technology that developed heavy amphibious aircraft, which in turn allowed for the aircraft of the most effective flight-operational characteristics, including multi-purpose.

His first flight of amphibious aircraft Beriev Be-Snipe 103 1997 realized in the middle of the year, and the model is not immediately successful test demonstrated performance that has led to the need to improve the structure of the aircraft in order to improve reliability. The serial production of the aircraft Beriev Be-103 Snipe entered only 2003 year, at the same time interested in the aircraft not only Russian companies, but also international, in particular, several batches of this model was sent to Canada.

Depending on the internal configuration, on board the aircraft can accommodate up to 6 people, including one member of the crew and five passengers.

Also on board the aircraft Beriev Be-103 Snipe can accommodate up to 545 kilogram payload, which in turn makes it possible to transport goods at a specified distance.

As the power plant on the plane model Beriev Be-103 Snipe used two piston aircraft engine Continental IO-360-ES4, capable of developing power 211 hp each, however, depending on the requirements of the customer directly, can be used, and other propulsion systems, including at least, and more powerful, which naturally influences the maximum speed of flight is about 250 km \ h.
