Aircraft Kestrel K-350 is a high-tech multi-purpose aircraft, designed for operation in civil aviation and in the military sphere. The actual development of this aircraft began in 2000-year, however, due to the disruption of financing, its first flight the plane of the model implemented in 2006 year, while in the production project was launched only 2010 year, where, again, due to some financial problems, the issue was limited.
Initially, the aircraft project Kestrel K-350 supposed to perform with conventional materials that inherently had to reduce the cost issue, however, is in the final stage of development experts have come to believe that the use of composite materials will provide the aircraft higher flight performance, in particular, a lighter construction at elevated strength qualities.

Aircraft Kestrel K-350 has an acceptable design, and allows you to put on your board to 7 passengers, which in turn makes it susceptible for use in the commercial sector, however, because of the relatively high cost of the aircraft, according to 2014 year order 3,2 million, the plane will be used solely as an administrative-type aircraft. Transportation on board an aircraft of various cargo total weight up to 1520 kilos as possible, but, in fact, the use of aircraft Kestrel K-350 in this area is not cost-effective, since it is not able to pay off.
Among other things, the development of the aircraft experts have made it possible to use it in the field of military aviation, in particular aircraft Kestrel K-350 can be used for reconnaissance, observation of the flight and ground patrols. However, at the moment because of the limited edition, in Air Force aircraft of this model is not used.
The power plant of the aircraft Kestrel K-350 is a turboprop aircraft engine Honeywell TPE331-14GR, capable of developing a thrust of 1650 hp, which in turn provides the aircraft the ability to accelerate to maximum speed in 750 km \ h., At a maximum range of flight in 2084 kilometers. Nevertheless, powerful propulsion system of the aircraft needs costly maintenance, which reduces popularity.
