Start of work on the development of a light aircraft was initiated in 1962, in connection with the need to provide citizens with aircraft suitable mainly for acceleration gliders. However, despite the rather small amount of production of the model aircraft, aircraft have also found application in private aviation, which continue to actively operate to this day.
The first flight of PIK-15 Hinu aircraft took place in 1964 year, and literally within a few months, the plane went into production, which lasted not so much because of their special purpose and a fairly narrow target use - for the whole production period of the Finnish aircraft builders managed to build only 7 aircrafts of this model, of which, in operation was only 2012 6 units of data for the year.

The aircraft is designed with the use of relatively simple and inexpensive materials, and therefore its cost was very reasonable for future customers, however, for other reasons, the plane did not get much popularity. Thanks to the good aerodynamic shape, the plane has a simple handling and maneuverability is very high, which is important for aircraft of this type.
The cabin of the aircraft PIK-15 Hinu designed for two people, and, as a rule, because of the modest cabin dimensions, carried on board the aircraft of any goods is not possible, at that time, as thanks to a powerful propulsion system, the aircraft has a very higher maximum takeoff weight. In addition to the transportation of people and acceleration gliders, aircraft PIK-15 Hinu can also be used, and as the training aircraft, helped by the presence of paired controls, as well as a sufficiently high reliability of the aircraft. Experts believe that it is possible to found the plane and a lot of support among the customers, however, for several reasons, and this includes also small enough following distance is about 650 kilometers, this did not happen, and therefore the project failed.
Power plant PIK-15 Hinu aircraft consists of a piston aircraft engine four-cylinder Lycoming O-320 150 power in hp, which in turn provides the aircraft and a high load capacity, making it possible to use the aircraft to disperse the glider, and quite a good speed flight, reaching 190 km \ h. (The maximum rate).
