During July 2006 production of MD3 Rider aircraft in GRYF Aircraft spol. s r.o. in Hluk was stopped by Flyitalia S.r.l. - majority Gryf Aircraft spol. s r.o. owner. All three not finished aircraft and lot of subassemblies and parts were moved from Hluk to new Flyitalia production partner in Slovakia. MD3 Rider is actually produced by other firm and finalized and sold directly by Flyitalia S.r.l. company - or according to their agreements and negotiations about production and dealership. We are very sorry - because of this change this page cannot be used as MD3 Rider production site. Although of that we would like to retain this page as technical help page for MD3 Rider dealers and customers.
