The development and subsequent production of aircraft Piper PA-16 Clipper was conducted on the basis of a model Piper PA-15 Vagabond, Which is seen in the similar fuselage of this model. Nevertheless, aviation engineers from Piper Aircraft Corporation have expanded the interior space of the cabin, allowing the transport of up to 3 passengers on board the aircraft. Nevertheless, despite the increased passenger capacity of this aircraft, the Piper PA-16 Clipper model has become a multi-purpose one, and has been used, including for cargo transportation, agricultural work, etc. In addition, the Piper PA-16 Clipper model began to be used by a number of air carriers to perform flights on small routes, in connection with which the model gained popularity quite well according to the experts' opinion.

The distinguishing feature of light-engine aircraft Piper PA-16 Clipper is also a powerful propulsion system provided by a four-cylinder aircraft engine Lycoming O-235 115 hp capacity, allowing the aircraft to accelerate to speed in 225 km \ h (the maximum speed of flight).

Its aerodynamic shape of the fuselage and a modified airfoil, aircraft manufacturers of the Piper Aircraft Corporation was able to reduce the drag of the aircraft, which is why about 5% lower fuel consumption compared to previous versions.

Among other things, thanks to weighted aircraft design, aircraft handling greatly improved, allowing no problem to use the aircraft even in windy conditions.

Because the maximum range of the aircraft Piper PA-16 Clipper compiled 778 kilometers, the aircraft cabin was made comfortable enough - the new seat passengers and the pilot were comfortable enough, and if necessary they could be adjusted or completely dismantled, if the plane was supposed to to operate as a vehicle for transportation of goods, the total weight in kilograms 365 (excluding the weight of the pilot).

In less than a year, and it has been so for the duration of the production period, managed to build 736 aircraft Piper PA-16 Clipper, of which, according to 2012 year in operation is about 480 aircraft, mainly privately owned. It is assumed that the main reason for such a short production cycle is the emergence of new, more modern aircraft that have more efficient flight performance.
