When developing the aircraft CZAW Parrot, Czech design engineers set out to create an easy and inexpensive aircraft intended for private use, however, in the ten years of its operation, the aircraft has established itself increasingly as a sports aircraft, and, although the speed of the aircraft is not is high, the plane has a good controllability and maneuverability.

Initially, it was planned to produce CZAW Parrot aircraft as self-assembly kits, however, due to some time-consuming work, the assembly process could last about 1200 hours, which naturally would not satisfy customers' requirements, and the aircraft would actually remain unclaimed. In the end, it was decided to produce fully operational aircraft, while the cost did not differ high - at the beginning of 2015, the cost of one aircraft was only about 95 thousand euros, while the aircraft itself had a high Reliability and did not require expensive maintenance. Nevertheless, already in three years, the airplane was discontinued - as a sports model it was of little interest to professional pilots, and at the same time it did not satisfy the desires of private owners, therefore, work was begun on the revision of the aircraft, and already in 2010, On the basis of the CZAW Parrot aircraft a modification was created, which became more popular.

The CZAW Parrot uses a four-cylinder piston engine Rotax 912ULS capable of developing 100 hp of thrust as a power plant. Subsequently, with the advent of modifications, the power plant underwent a number of improvements and was replaced with a more progressive one, capable of accelerating the aircraft to high speeds, without affecting maneuverability and controllability.
