This aircraft is designed for four people. Because of being able to land and take off in short distances it can be used in mountainous areas. Half wings under the main ones provide more balanced gliding. Also, the supporting parts between the main and the half wings supply more stability to wing structure. By using ﬂoats under the half wings , it is possible to land on sea. Moreover, perforated seating units provide ligthness and spacious interior. The high top canopy makes plane capacious. The challenges in design process were increasing performance and durability of the plane and having more spacious and useful interior design without breaking brand identity.
