Caldwell, Idaho, USA.
Just Aircraft was founded in 2002 when aircraft designer Troy Woodland left his position at Flying K Enterprises, manufacturer of the Sky Raider kit. Troy wanted to design a plane of his own. He met Gary Schmitt at an air show and Gary wanted a plane with many of the features of the new Escapade.With Gary's backing they collaberated on a design.
The Escapade has a huge luggage compartment, a more roomy cabin , and a simplified wing-folding mechanism that avoids the need to remove control linkages.
Soon after the Escapade came the Highlander, a more rugged plane that was the bush airplane they wanted. The Highlander Debuted at Arlington in 2004, and by 2010 dominated Just’s sales by three-to-one aircrafts sold .
In 2004 the company relocated to Walhalla, South Carolina, into a state of the art production facility with its own runway. This was a time of serious growth for Just Aircraft, when materials buying and costs analysis became implemented, when marketing, accounting, and all other true "front office" needs of the growing company were founded.
Over 170 kits had been shipped worldwide: including England, France, Spain, New Zealand, Canada and Equador. Sales are running about 50/50 domestic and export.
In addition to selling kits, Just Aircraft offers customers a build assist program, where they can construct their plane in the factory, or the Company will build 100% of the plane in accordance to the customers specifications.
