SKYLEADER a.s. is a private Czech joint stock company active in light aircraft industry. Currently SKYLEADER a.s. keeps a 100% interest in JIHLAVAN airplanes, s.r.o. and a minority interest in SPROUT, s.r.o.
JIHLAVAN airplanes, s.r.o., a Limited Liability company and 100% subsidiary enterprise of SKYLEADER a.s., was established after takeover of all incorporeal rights and production technology of the light aircraft from the company KAPPA 77, s.r.o., in March 2005. With the usage of such know-how the company designs, manufactures, sells and maintains the UL/S-LSA aircraft under the SKYLEADER trade mark. With support of the Institute of Aerospace Engineering at the Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic, the aircraft has been gradually innovated. The high level of quality standards enabled the company also to supply the components to aeronautical industry.
