Aircraft Rutan Defiant project were created by American aircraft manufacturers in 1975 year, in particular, the very aircraft design was designed by Bёrtom Rutan and the technical part of the aircraft engaged a dedicated team of design engineers, which in just three years of development have managed to create high quality and very exclusive air tool.
aircraft design Rutan Defiant has a very unusual shape, in particular, as such, the tail portion in the plane is missing, however, despite this fact, the aircraft has a very good maneuverability and easy to operate, although there are some nuances that require the pilot a lot of experience .
For the first time in the air Rutan Defiant model aircraft rose in June 30 1978 years, while testing of all systems was successful almost immediately and the aircraft was put into mass production. In order to minimize the cost of the aircraft, the plane began to be carried out by US aircraft manufacturers as self-assembly kits, and, thanks to the unification of the parts did not require a lot of time to do so.

The aircraft Rutan Defiant cabin can accommodate up to four people, so that the aircraft can be used to perform private air travel, as well as an air taxi money. Maximum distance of flight is also quite satisfactory, and is about 1810 kilometers, which actually suits the possibility of operation of commercial aircraft in civil aviation. In addition, the aircraft Rutan Defiant can also be used for transport on its board small cargo total weight 558 kg, however, in this case, the plane can carry on its board of only one passenger.
Powerplant Rutan Defiant aircraft consists of two piston engines, with one aircraft engine is located in front of the aircraft, and the second - in the back, and performs no pulling and pushing role. Each of the engines used here is capable of power 160 hp, which in turn allows the aircraft to accelerate to speed in 340 km \ h. (The maximum rate).
According to official data of the Federal Agency US civil aviation, according to 2005 year in the United States 19 aircraft of this model have been reported, however, in reality, the release plane was slightly higher.
