The Rallye 893 is a single engined, low wing monoplane of all metal construction, fitted with a fixed tricycle gear. It has a bulbous cockpit which houses four people and it can be used as a towplane for sailplanes.

One of its particularities is being equiped with automatic slats, that deploy at low speeds/high incidence to help in slow flight and enable the plane to sink in wings-level reduced-power stalls rather than break with a nose-down pitch change.

The slats combined to the important fowler flaps allow for very short take off and landings, even on rough surfaces.
