Light aircraft manufacturers in the Czech Republic

Czechoslovakia had significant history in producing aircraft but the aeronautical industry was extremely influenced by several negative factors at the end of the 1980’s. The collapse of the East European market, combined with the world recession reduced the production of all aircraft manufacturers.

Since 1990 many small private companies specializing mainly in the production of light sporting aircraft were founded. These firms are headed by very experienced engineers and workers, being former employees of big state owned aeronautical factories. Czech Republic became third largest manufacturer of such planes (after France and Germany) [http://technik.ihned.cz/1-10015230-14724870-800000_detail-2f] .
