The aircraft of the De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover model was designed by Australian aircraft manufacturers in 1945, and in fact, in just three years, the engineers succeeded in creating a high-quality aircraft capable of carrying passengers and cargo on very long routes, at a very acceptable speed. The time to design the De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover for aircraft builders from the company "De Havilland Australia" was largely due to the fact that the parts and units of previous models of aircraft were used in the development, which had already passed all the necessary tests before.

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.

The first flight into the air of the De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover aircraft took place in January of the year 1948, however, during the tests, the aircraft designers detected some flaws in the design of the aircraft, which required optimization, so the actual production of this model aircraft was deployed Only in the middle of 1949 year. The release of the De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover aircraft was by no means a massive one - during the production period, which lasted from 1949 year on 1953, 20 aircraft of this model were built, and the low popularity of the aircraft was associated with the emergence of more efficient and practical aircraft, Which actually replaced the De Havilland Australia DHA-3 Drover model from 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.
