Our exposition will be situated at exhibition stand No. 301 in Hall B3, where we will be presenting our products, and at Hall A7, where we will be presenting our Skyleader 400 with electric propulsion to you.
Our current Skyleader brand’s more than 20 years of history started in the 1990s when the first draft of a modern all-metal four-seater aeroplane was produced in the Czech Republic. The Z90 aircraft and its light-weight variant TP41 was designed as a replacement of the existing Z40 series produced by Moravan. The study was elaborated at the Institute of Aerospace Engineering of the Brno University of Technology.
However, the economic and organizational conditions that existed in the country at that time made the realization of the Z90 project impossible. The concept of the modern all-metal four-seater aeroplane was not lost, though. Later on, when the opportunity came, we managed to build ultralight versions of the Z90 and TP41 aeroplanes. Most members of the then newly built team came from the Jihlavan company group. It was therefore no surprise that the development of the aircraft was incredibly fast. Indeed, the prototype was finished only one year after commencing work!
The current product range includes six types of aeroplanes for casual and sport flying, pilot training or special operations. We produce our aeroplanes according to the strict North American ASTM standards.
Our customers, aeroplane owners all around the world, particularly appreciate the safety of our aeroplanes (due to their robust design) and pleasant and comfortable flying with these machines.
All our aeroplanes are custom-equipped according to the wishes of the customer, ranging from the basic flight configuration (Ready To Fly).
Our company has significantly participated in the aerospace research activities of Czech universities and in designing and production of aeroplanes. Part of our production consists in supplying of frames for small helicopters.
Our Aeroplanes that are currently in production:
Skyleader 100 / Skyleader 200 / Skyleader 400 / Skyleader 500 / Skyleader 600 / Skyleader GP ONE
