Due to the new categories for light aircraft CS-VLA / JAR-VLA and the ageing airplanes existing flying schools in Argentina a group of private entrepreneurs, engineers with experience in the construction of experimental airplanes and pilots decide to create a Joint Venture.
After the design stage, construction the airplane was certified by the National Aviation Administration of Argentina that complies with the regulations of both U.S./FAA and Europe/EASA.
