Plane Design Nord 260 conducted exclusively for its operation on the routes of the local and regional level, to which, in turn, pointed out that a small passenger aircraft. However, a multi-purpose aircraft appeared and later on it actively made transportation of cargo, which according to experts was more effective in terms of profitability.

His first flight of the aircraft took place in the Nord 260 1960 year, and during the same period and came into production. During testing of the aircraft aircraft company «Avions Max Holste» was unsatisfied all the characteristics of the aircraft, as a consequence, the aircraft completed its release, suggesting inadvisability of the further development of this project. However, other French aircraft builder, we are talking about the company «Nord Aviation», decided to continue production of aircraft of this model, in connection with what has been constructed, at least, 8 of aircraft turboprop type, some of which continue to be used as transport air assets and the present day.

aircraft the Nord Salon 260 has small dimensions and, in fact, allows you to put on the board just before 23 passengers, which was the main reason why this model aircraft was operated solely on neprotyazhёnnyh air routes. The maximum range of the aircraft is 1,5 thousand kilometers, which in turn also provides narrow applicability of the aircraft, however, in addition to passenger traffic, the aircraft performed well as transport cargo aircraft, which allows to carry on board up to 3800 kg, which, taking into account time of production and operation of the aircraft, it was quite popular and promising.

The power plant of the Nord 260 plane represented by two turboprop aircraft engines Turbomeca Bastan IV, able to develop in the total volume of up to 1970 thrust horsepower, which in turn provides the aircraft and high rate of duty, as well as a high flight speed is about 380 km \ h . (cruising speed).
