Development of the aircraft Ekolot KR-030 Topaz Polish aircraft designers was conducted on the basis of other, earlier model Ekolot JK-05 Junior, With the actual changes were made only to the external and internal design, while in flight-technical terms, the aircraft of any significant changes are undergone.

The first work on the development of the Ekolot KR-030 Topaz aircraft began in 2009, and if initially it was intended to expand the interior space of the aircraft cabin, in the final analysis it was decided to abandon this idea due to a significant increase in the cost of production of the aircraft. In addition, since the release of the Ekolot KR-030 Topaz was supposed to be carried out in a fully assembled state, in the form of special sets for self-assembly, the increase in the number of parts would certainly have played on the laboriousness of the work on assembling the aircraft, which also produced an exceptionally negative reaction On the part of customers.

The Ekolot KR-030 Topaz aircraft can take up to two people, including one crew member and one passenger, which in turn does not allow the commercial aircraft to operate this aircraft, while the maximum range of the aircraft is 975 km ., Which meets the requirements of air transportation on local air routes. Despite the lack of additional seats, the interior space of the Ekolot KR-030 Topaz aircraft was partially expanded, which increased the comfort of the air travel, and allowed the placement of some baggage on board the aircraft, which was previously somewhat difficult.

The Ekolot KR-030 Topaz aircraft uses a power plant consisting of one Rotax 912UL piston-type aircraft engine, capable of developing a thrust of 80 hp, which is equivalent to the model on the basis of which this aircraft was created. The maximum flight speed of the Ekolot KR-030 Topaz model is 220 km / h, which is to some extent more than that of the previous model, and allows you to quickly overcome the maximum possible following distance. Among other things, Polish aircraft designers also considered the possibility of installing a more powerful aircraft engine in the aircraft, however, with its dimensions and type, it must correspond to the base power plant.

According to 2015 year, production of aircraft models Ekolot KR-030 Topaz continues to this day, thanks to a very substantial demand for this aircraft.
