Despite the fact that the plane model Fairchild 24 was designed by US aircraft manufacturers still in the pre-war period, the vehicle is officially recognized as one of the most popular among small-engine aircraft in the world - of 16-year period of production was built 2232 aircraft, most of of which is in operation to this day.

Initially aircraft Fairchild 24 was developed in connection with the broad needs of the citizens in an effective and inexpensive multi-purpose aircraft, suitable for passenger air travel and for the transport of small loads in mass. Himself plane developed by American aeronautical engineer for several years, and eventually became quite attractive in the above characteristics, and the flight-technical terms.

On board the aircraft Fairchild 24 can accommodate up to three passengers, with, the plane is able to perform air travel only a very neprotyazhёnnyh distances - about 750 kilometers, depending on the version and the actual destination. However, the plane was actively used for passenger transportation services, as well as for transportation of goods up to a total weight of 500 kilos, which also proved to be very popular.

In addition to the civilian version of the aircraft, in production, in the period of the Second World War, it was also launched and the military version, intended mostly for transportation of goods, ammunition, etc. A distinctive feature of the military version is a reinforced fuselage, increased loading capacity, higher speed and flight range.

As the power plant, on the aircraft models used by Fairchild 24 piston aircraft engine, which, depending on the production period and modifications can develop motive power from the 95 200 to HP, which in turn provided the aircraft maximum airspeed to 200 km \ h. (using aircraft engine capacity of 200 hp).
