Development of small-aircraft Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I were an American designer for four years, which in turn will greatly raise the price of the aircraft project, and that was one of the reasons why the aircraft of this model does not go into series production. In addition, since the plane for the entire period of development several times to reschedule at the final stage of the identified flaws in the engineering design of the aircraft, without hindering its operation, but in fact, do not meet the requirements for light-engine aircraft of this type.

His first flight model Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I carried in 1979 year, however, for several reasons, the aircraft was presented to the public only a few months. Initially it was assumed that the aircraft will be available as sets for self-assembly, however, due to the long development of the aircraft greatly increased the cost of the aircraft, which is why, even in the case of self-assembly of the aircraft, the price is not satisfied customer, and therefore the project was closed.
In the cockpit of small-aircraft Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I can accommodate two people - a pilot and a passenger, which is also not suitable for commercial use of the aircraft, although himself an American designer called for subsequently creating four-seater version of the aircraft that is largely to increased demand for it . Due to the limited internal space, the plane Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I also unsuitable for transporting goods, but for these purposes and it is not provided.

The powerplant used in the light-engine aircraft Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I is a four-cylinder piston aircraft engine Lycoming IO-360 A1B, capable of a thrust 200 hp, which in turn allows you to accelerate the airplane to a speed of 260 km \ h. (maximum speed of flight). In addition, powerful enough powerplant made the aircraft a very agile and at the same time made it possible to overcome even very smoothly two longest distances - maximum flight range of the model Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I was 1894 kilometers.
Subsequently, based on the model Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I, in 1989 year, it was created a modified extended version, obrёtshaya great popularity around the world.
