FLYITALIA s.r.l. company was established in Syracuse - Sicily, by Anton Quercioli, Marino Pezzotti and Franco Buratto. Jaro Dostal participated on these negotiations from the Czech side, without any FLYITALIA share. That time, Marian Mečiar was missing, because of starting work for Aero Vodochody as a leader of Aero 270 program. During starting dialogues about our first aircraft Italian side preferred more powerful variant with wide cockpit and more aggressive look. Opposite to original idea, using square rear bottom fuselage part and classic fin, our aircraft received rounded rear part and swept fin with simpler one-piece elevator. Classical cockpit welded cage with front tube triangle was changed with brand new structure with free view. After weighing analysis we have to append 3 degree negative wing swept , not to lose an ideal fuselage shape and good view from cockpit.
