The dawn of the aviation industry in Kunovice came in 1934 when a group of aviation enthusiasts opened a small workshop and started to build gliders. In 1936 the famous Czech aviation company AVIA opened its factory in the city of Kunovice. During World War II the factory operated as a repair facility for Junkers and Arado aircraft and after the war also for Spitfires and Lavochkins
After the war, the city of Kunovice was involved in the repairs of almost all aircraft flying at that time within the Czechoslovak airspace. New production facilities and the airport were built during the period 1950-1954 on the site where the Czech Sport Aircraft facility is located today. Thousands of various aircraft types and categories have been designed, developed and manufactured in the Kunovice production site since 1954 till today.
The region is steeped in aviation history. The city of Kunovice and the surrounding area represent the important center of aviation heritage and home to one of the largest aero clubs in the Czech Republic where generations of pilots have been trained.
