Two pilots aboard Flaris

wrz 15, 2022

Today, for the first time, the FLARIS LAR 1 plane had two test pilots on board! Wieslaw Cena and Dominik Punda (both in the photos) sat at the controls. They performed five 10-minute flights.

This is another step in the development of our worldwide innovative business jet. Earlier, on April 5, 2019, Flaris made its first flight. The jet took to the skies from the Zielona Góra Babimost airport. Wieslaw Cena, an experienced and outstanding experimental pilot, sat at the controls of FLARIS LAR1.
On April 5 the Polish FLARIS LAR1 jet engineered by the Metal-Master company took to the skies for the first time from the Zielona Gora Babimost Airport.

– This is a milestone for the project and for the aviation industry – said at the time Head of the Flaris Program Rafał Ładziński. – This small jet, powered by a WILLIAMS FJ33-5A engine produced in the United States, is a worldwide innovative structure. It belongs to a new category of High Speed Personal Jets HPJ®.

FLARIS LAR 1 is in the process of applying for a certificate in the S1 category.
The concept of a compact and economical personal jet capable of taking off from any aeroclub first appeared at Rafał Ładziński’s studio. For this Polish engineer, entrepreneur, and visionary leader it was clear that the world was waiting for such a machine. No one before has successfully combined the advantages of a jet engine with economic accessibility and ease of flying. Ładziński assembled a team of engineers and that is how this amazing cooperation and adventure involving many brilliant experts began.

– This idea of a personal jet swiftly conquered the hearts of thousands of enthusiasts across the globe who keep on supporting us – says Rafał Ładziński.

The first designs and prototypes of Flaris LAR 01 were developed at Metal-Masters specializing in modern technological lines in the automotive industry. The company, founded by Sylwia and Rafał Ładziński, became a natural incubator for innovative solutions for the new jet, and 22 obtained patents seem to confirm this.
The FLARIS company was established in 2012 for the purpose of serial production of LAR 01. Flaris brand is planning to expand to a wider variety of aircraft constructions. Innovation and dauntlessness in taking on demanding technological challenges, engineering, production, and popularization of affordable GA aircraft will be the unique features of the brand.
