Design of multi-purpose light sport aircraft began in the middle of the German aircraft manufacturers 80-ies of the last century. Initially, the new aircraft was to have a very limited scope of its application, in particular, the aircraft had only a sports destination, but later aircraft manufacturers managed to optimize the design of the aircraft, thereby reducing the final cost of the aircraft, and ensuring popularization among private owners, where the aircraft the device could be used as a means for the needs of air directly to the owner.
The compact dimensions of the aircraft fuselage, as well as the low weight of the aircraft, the aircraft provides a very good control and maneuverability, which is very important for sport aircraft, as when performing aerobatic stunts, requires accuracy and high speed.
Its first test flight of a prototype of the future of the aircraft took place in May 1988 years, and in fact due to the fact that there were no deviations from the norm aircraft manufacturers has not been fixed, the project was able to successfully pass all required tests as a consequence. At the end of the year 1988 project went into production, where, due to the rather high popularity, continues to be to this day.

The cabin of the aircraft models Extra EA-300 has a fairly compact dimensions, allowing to stay on board only two people - one pilot and one passenger. The aircraft also has a system of dual control, which allows to use the aircraft as a teaching and training tool, however, due to a large enough airspeed, operation of the aircraft for such purposes is carried out exclusively by pilots who already have a big enough aircraft management experience of the type.
For a number of technical and design reasons, the aircraft Extra EA-300 can not be used for transport to its board of any of the goods - this is due to primarily the small size of the internal space, and a very limited carrying capacity of the aircraft.
Power plant multipurpose aircraft Extra EA-300 consists of a piston aircraft engine brand Lycoming AEIO-540-L1B5, which is having a capacity of 300 hp, can accelerate the aircraft to a maximum airspeed in 405 km \ h. The maximum range of the aircraft following this model is 770 kilometers.
