Development of the aircraft Skyleader GP One began by Czech engineers and designers in the 2007 year, with the main purpose of creating the aircraft of this type was the need for private owners of inexpensive and high-quality aircraft, allowing to carry out air travel at very of extended-range when flying at about 200 km speed \ h.

The aircraft of the Skyleader GP One model made its first flight in 2010, and it was then that this aircraft was first presented to the general public, which very well appreciated its capabilities and flight performance. In the same year, but a few months later, the Skyleader GP One aircraft entered serial production, where it remains to this day, which is mainly due to its high popularity, mainly due to the low price of one aircraft, which today is about 65 thousand euros.

Initially Czech aircraft manufacturers have assumed that the aircraft will be produced as a completely ready for use, or as kits kits for self-assembly, but, ultimately, as the process was very time consuming and require some knowledge, it was decided to abandon this second option, as a consequence, in the aircraft manufacturing company aircraft fully assembled and can be immediately used to fly her future owner.

On board the aircraft Skyleader GP One can accommodate up to two people at the same time, the plane is mainly used by households for their own use - as a rule, it is for the purpose of flights carrying people at distances up to 1370 kilometers. Aircraft Skyleader GP One can not carry out transportation on its board of any goods, moreover, it is connected with the type of aircraft, and the fact that the cabin is virtually no space to accommodate cargo.

The four-piston aircraft engine Rotax 912UL, used here as a power plant, is capable of traction in 80 hp, which in turn is quite sufficient to carry out the order of extended air travel at speeds 195-215 km \ h. Initially it was assumed that the aircraft, depending on customer requirements can be equipped with engines having thrust of 80 hp 115 to HP, however, is in turn required to expand production, as a consequence of such an idea, it was decided to give up because of a lack of rationality and reduce payback.
