Work on the creation of a multi-purpose passenger and cargo aircraft were German engineers, aircraft designers over 6 years, while themselves developing in the process underwent a number of changes and additions, which ultimately led to greatly increased the price of one aircraft, which is why the popularity of the aircraft was very mediocre.
The main priority and the reason why this was the projected demand for the aircraft began in the multipurpose aircraft capable of engaging in air travel as a passenger, taking into account the feasibility of flights on local airlines, as well as perform a small mass transportation of goods. If in the early stages of designing the project promised to be very popular, then, ultimately, the release of airplanes Extra EA-400 was very limited - for the entire production period was built only a half dozen of these aircraft.

Aircraft Extra EA-400 has small dimensions - plane length is less than 10 meters in span in 11,5 meters, but despite this, he is able to carry on its board until 5 passengers, excluding one pilot, as well as the transportation of goods total a mass of about 569 kg. The maximum range of the following aircraft is about 2889 km. At that time, both because of the limitations of the maximum payload and the available space in the cabin, the aircraft is rarely used at distances of more than a thousand kilometers of existing inappropriate.
As the power plant in an airplane models Extra EA-400 uses a turbocharged six-cylinder piston aircraft engine Continental TSIOL-550-C Voyager, capable of developing a thrust of 350 hp The maximum of the aircraft airspeed is approximately 385 km \ h. However, due to the above drawbacks, it is likely only a small positive torque.
The most significant reason for the aircraft Extra EA-400 not gained popularity, is the extremely high cost component, as of early 2014 year, about one million dollars, which of course is largely higher than that of more advanced aircraft of this type .
Subsequently, the German developers offered to strengthen the fuselage of the aircraft and installed on the aircraft turboprop aircraft engine, however, due to the virtual absence of demand for this model, from the decision was made to abandon.
