Aircraft Cirrus VK-30 were developed by American aeronautical engineer in the early 80-ies, when it specifically for this model unique design was created that meets aerodynamic requirements, but also, quite extraordinary is the design of the aircraft, which is not used tractive effort produced by piston aircraft engines, and pushing force.
In 1987 year, the plane Cirrus VK-30 was presented to the public, but its first flight this aircraft made only a year later - in the year 1988. Initially, the model is very much interested potential customers, and, taking into account not only the low cost of the kit for self-assembly (original price was 52 thousand dollars per set), but also very promising flight performance. However, due to the fact that the assembly of the aircraft required a special skill, and actually took about 2 thousand hours, the popularity of this aircraft fell sharply, and as of early 2015 years, all was created 15 sets, of which two assembled model aviamuzeyah located in the United States.

Power plant on the plane Cirrus VK-30 located in the rear portion thereof, and is a single piston aircraft engine Continental IO-550-G power in 300 hp, which in turn provides the acceleration of the aircraft up to speed in 405 km \ h. The reciprocating engine of this model is reliable in its operational plan, and does not cause problems in the service, that usually is very uncharacteristic for aircraft assembly which carries out directly by the customer.
Currently the issue of aircraft Cirrus VK-30 continues, however, due to low demand among buyers, it is expected to complete in mid-2017 years - as a rule, only one aircraft is carried out for the release of two years.
