KP 2U


In 1994 the development of the all-metal UL aircraft KP-2U SOVA was started. Three prototypes were built: two for the test flights and one for the strength tests. The first test flight of the SOVA was done in May 1996. In September 1997 the aircraft obtained the type certificate by the UL-2 regulations from the Air Amateur Association of the Czech republic.


In June 1977, KAPPA77 a.s. was founded and the KP-2U entered serial production. After the KAPPA 77 a.s. was declared bankruptcy on 16 February 2005, the company Jihlavan airplanes, s.r.o. was founded on 2 March 2005 with the main objective – to proceed in the production of the ultralight aircraft KP 2U SOVA. On 1 April 2005, the Jihlavan airplanes, s.r.o. became the holder of the manufacture rights, intellectual properties, etc. of the KP-2U. Over 160 airplanes of the Kappa KP-2U versions were built. After Jihlavan took over the production of the aircraft it was renamed as the Rapid KP-2U.

The Kappa KP-2UR Sova is a side-by-side two-seat low-wing ultralight aeroplane, featuring variable-pitch three blade composite prop, retractable trailing link tricycle undercarriage and fowler flaps.


The all-metal aircraft is delivered in airworthy condition, with electro-retractable landing gear with hydraulic brakes, mechanically controlled Fowler flaps, removable wings with winglets, dual control and an elevator with electro-controlled trim tab. Both fabric-covered seats are adjustable, with four-point safety belts.
