The aircraft model Percival Mew Gull in the design of the British aviarazrabotchikami that was deployed in the early 30-ies of the last century, was of extremely narrow focus of its operation, in particular, the aircraft was supposed to be used exclusively as a sports plane or private vehicle.
As a fundamental principle, aircraft manufacturers have used the aircraft model Percival Gull, who appeared a little earlier, however, the aircraft design has undergone a number of radical changes, in particular, aircraft manufacturers aerodynamic component was optimized, ensuring the aircraft the opportunity to develop a higher speed of its flight, to travel long distances on less fuel. Moreover, in addition to modified aircraft design, the aircraft also has undergone a number of technical improvements, which also affected the flight performance of the aircraft.

Multiple aircraft model Percival Mew Gull made its first test flight in March 1934 years and due to the fact that all planned tests have been very successful, already in the same year the aircraft was able to enroll in full-scale production, which continued for a long enough period, however, during the period from at 1934 1938 year it was built just 6 aircraft, of which up to now remained only a single instance of the component part of the exhibition aviation museum in London.
The cabin of the aircraft has a fairly compact dimensions that can accommodate only one person on board the aircraft. The compact dimensions of the aircraft cabin is mainly related to the need to ensure high aerodynamic properties, which is very important, especially given the fact that the aircraft is positioned as a sports aircraft. For the transportation of goods on board his plane Percival Mew Gull is not adapted.

The power plant of the aircraft represented by one piston aircraft engine brand de Havilland Gipsy Six II, having a towing capacity of 205 hp, allowing the aircraft to develop the maximum flight speed of up to 375 km \ h. The maximum distance that the Percival Mew Gull model aircraft can perform flights, limited distance in 2410 kilometers, which is quite acceptable, especially since the aircraft has a very narrow purpose.
