Hradec Kralóvé, Czech Republic; Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) February 16, 2006 –-
TL Utralight sro, with headquarters in Hradec Kralóvé, Czech Republic along with SportairUSA LC of Little Rock AR revealed today completion of TL’s new 44,000 square foot factory in Hradec Kralóvé. TL Ultralight, manufacturers of the TL-2000 Sting (known in North America as TL Sport Aircraft and StingSport respectively), currently employs 70 people but plans to double the base over the next year.
While TL’s existing factory successfully delivered over 400 aircraft, the exceptional global acceptance and Special Light Sport Aircraft (SLSA) certification of the StingSport triggered the need for a more scalable production facility. TL Sport Aircraft owner Jiří Tlustý remarked “the factory completion caps a major financial and resource effort spanning nine months and establishes the base to nearly quadruple existing aircraft production over the next year. It also delivers capacity for new aircraft introduction” hinted Tlustý.
Bill Canino of SportairUSA, North American and largest distributor of the StingSport, praised TL’s vision “in both timely anticipation of worldwide demand and their commitment and speed in establishing a high tech carbon fiber composite center of excellence in Hradec Kralóvé”.
“While production expands dramatically with the new factory, TL remains squarely focused on quality assurance” asserted Tlustý whose father of the same name was founder and member of the world renowned Flying Bulls (http://www.flyingbulls.cz). “We’ve added resources to ensure that quality matches production enhancements stride for stride”.
StingSport, the premier performance, best-equipped and safety conscious value in sport aircraft will be showcased this Saturday February 18th at the EAA Sport Pilot Tour in Mesa Arizona and again February 25th at the Northwest Aviation Conference and Trade Show in Puyallup Washington.
