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.
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.
