Most people associate aviation in Czech republic with Aero Vodochody but there are other engineering firms like the relatively new Evector which is known for its small sports airplanes and is now making a step to bigger aircraft with the EV-55. The new twin turboprop aircraft is getting ready for the official roll-out in the end of the month and it should make its first flight later this year.---

EV-55 is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-21 engines. It has a maximum payload of 1.8t and depending on the configuration can carry up to 14 passengers. It is designed for STOL and low-cost maintenance and use.
