Light multipurpose 7-seat pressurized cabin aircraft turboprop made its maiden flight on March 31, 1995. During trials, one of experimental planes performed emergency belly-landing. This crash (unintentionally) allowed to close several positions of certification program, related to safety and structural strength. Repairs were used to introduce several construction changes.

The Sokol Aviation Plant in Nizhny Novgorod has produced the first three aircraft at the moment of MAKS'97. It was certified by the end of 1997.

All-metal construction (aluminum alloys), retractable tricycle landing gear. Low pressure tires allow to operate "Gzhel" from 500-600m unpaved runways easy to build in any town. To shorten landing run, M-101T is equipped with reversible propeller. The package of modern navigation and avionics equipment permits all-weather day/night operation.
