The development of easy aircraft Miles M.17 Monarch British engineers began in the middle of the year 1935, and the rather short period of aircraft manufacturers and designers have managed to build quality and effective in terms of its operation of the aircraft, which found application not only in civil, but also military aircraft. Nevertheless, the production period of the airplane Miles M.17 Monarch was very short-lived, and by the end of the year 1939 the construction of aircraft of this model has been officially discontinued.
Despite the fact that the aircraft was released back in the pre-war period, the aircraft is largely superior to his age, what they say numerous sporting achievements, in particular, the plane four occupied high positions in the world's largest competition for sports flights (between with 1957 1958 on year), of which «Goodyear Trophy», «King's Cup Race», «Norton Griffiths Trophy» and «Osram Cup Race», which mainly contributed to the high rate of movement of the aircraft, and good maneuverability.

Because of the structure of the aircraft Miles M.17 Monarch, only three people can be accommodated on board, including one pilot and two passengers, or students, if we are talking about the operation of the aircraft in the Air Force for training purposes future pilots. For cargo plane Miles M.17 Monarch is not adapted, and experts associated with this factor in the lack of popularity among customers. Among other things, the model of Miles M.17 Monarch actively exploited as a sports aircraft until the early 70-ies of the last century, which largely contributed to its squat structure having good aerodynamic performance.
The four-cylinder aircraft engine De Havilland Gipsy Major I allowed to develop the aircraft power 130 hp, which in turn provided the aircraft to accelerate to high speeds - the maximum flight speed of the aircraft is 233 km \ h, with a maximum range of flight in 966 kilometers. . The power plant did not differ a great reliability, which often leads to various types of incidents, in connection with which it is known that according to the year 2012 the world existed only 4 aircraft of this model, half of which is not in use.
