Development of the aircraft Dyke Delta, later known as Dyke JD-2 Delta, began in 1963 year, while originally intended to create a double flying machine has a compact size at a relative strong powerplant. However, due to design projects and optimization of the internal cabin space, on board the aircraft were able to establish four seats, which in turn has increased the attractiveness of the aircraft among customers.

The length of the aircraft is less than 6 meters, however, the aircraft Dyke Delta has a number of attractive features, including a large seating capacity, high reliability, good handling, high agility, etc. Despite the great demand for aircraft, the release of this model was very limited - for the entire production period was built only 50 aircraft, of which, according to 2014 year, survived only 36 units, most of which are registered in the US and Canada, however, , and there is evidence on the operation of the aircraft, and in Western Europe.
In the cockpit Dyke Delta can accommodate up to 4 people - a pilot and three passengers, with this arrangement of seats is quite unusual, but this is by no means less effective. It was supposed even run the aircraft in mass production because its interest in the purchase of a large number of aircraft have expressed many private carriers, in particular, the aircraft can be used on local airlines (maximum flight range of the aircraft is 1400 km.) And in as a means of air taxis. However, because of the small size, the plane Dyke Delta is not suitable for the transport of goods, however, this is probably the only one of the existing shortcomings.
Despite its compact size model Dyke Delta, it uses a fairly powerful four-cylinder aircraft engine Avco Lycoming O-360, capable of producing thrust 180 hp, which in turn provides the maximum speed of an aircraft in flight 325 km \ h. That taking into account passenger capacity is more than acceptable.
According to some reports, the aircraft is capable of fast speed develop due to features of the design of the fuselage structure, in particular, is well faired a little height and closely spaced tail section of the aircraft.
