Evekator: A Leading Aircraft Manufacturer in Czech Republic
If you are interested in light sport aircraft, training aircraft, advanced ultralight aircraft or electric aircraft, you may have heard of Evekator. Evekator is a Czech company that produces a range of innovative and high-quality aircraft for various purposes and markets. In this article, we will introduce you to Evekator's history, products, achievements and future plans.
History of Evekator
Evekator's origins date back to 1970, when Aerotechnik was established as a producer of small general aviation airplanes. Its first products were gyrocopters and motor gliders, followed by the overhaul and maintenance of Czech aircraft such as the Zlin family.
The Transition to Light Sport Aircraft
In 1996, Evekator started to produce light sport aircraft and advanced ultralight aircraft, beginning with the P220UL Koala aircraft. In 1997, it introduced the EV-97 Eurostar, which became one of the most popular ultralight aircraft in Europe. In 2004, the SportStar became the first light sport aircraft accepted by the American Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The Development of Larger Aircraft
During 1997-2004, Evekator also worked as a subcontractor for the single engine turboprop Aero Ae 270 Ibis. In 2004, it launched its own single engine, four-seater airplane, the VUT100 Cobra. In 2010, it started to develop a twin engine turboprop airplane, the EV-55 Outback, which was first flown in 2011. The EV-55 Outback is designed for 9-14 passengers and can be used for passenger transport, cargo transport or special missions.
The Exploration of Electric Aircraft
In 2013, Evekator introduced the EPOS, an electric aircraft that uses a battery-powered motor and a propeller. The EPOS is intended for training and recreational flying, and has a range of about 60 km. The EPOS is still under development and testing as of 2021.
