The aircraft model De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover became designed by Australian aircraft manufacturers in 1945 year, and in fact, in just three years, engineers have managed to create high-quality aircraft, able to carry passengers and cargo on the very length of the route, at a very affordable rate. Reduce design time aircraft De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover aircraft manufacturers of the company «De Havilland Australia» succeeded largely due to the development of parts and components used in previous models of aircraft, which previously already had to pass all the required tests.
Aircraft De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover has good aerodynamic form factor of its fuselage, which in addition to providing greater speed of movement, makes it possible to reduce fuel consumption, and provides greater maneuverability.

His first ascent into the air plane model De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover has made in January 1948 years, however, in the course of tests, some drawbacks have been identified aircraft manufacturers in the aircraft structure, which required optimization, as a consequence, the actual production of aircraft of this model has been deployed 1949 only in the middle of the year. Issue aircraft De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover does not wear a mass character - for the production period, which lasted from 1949 until 1953 years 20 aircraft of this model were built, with low plane's popularity has been associated with the emergence of a more effective and practical aircraft which effectively replaced the model of De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover with the civil aviation market.
The aircraft model De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover piston aircraft engines equipped with three brand de Havilland Gipsy Major 10, each of which had its own thrust in 145 hp Due to a large enough power, the plane can reach speeds of up to 225 km \ h., And to carry out flights on distances of up to 1490 kilometers, which is quite acceptable.

Depending on the layout of the cabin of passenger aircraft model De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover, can accommodate up to 10 people aboard the aircraft, including one member of the crew and nine passengers. If necessary, the aircraft can also be used to transport various types of goods, so that the only condition is to respect and exceeding of the maximum take-off weight of the aircraft, component 2950 kg.
In addition to basic production version, Australian aircraft manufacturers was also released and upgraded version of the aircraft - De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Mk.2 Drover.
