TYPE: Four-seat kitbuilt.

PROGRAMME: First aircraft in P 200 series was single-seat P 210 S Coati with tailwheel-type landing gear. This does not appear to have entered production, but several two- to four-seat kitbuilt versions have appeared subsequently.

Modified version with Walter Mikron engine formerly produced in Czech Republic by Evektor-Aerotechnik and now marketed, with Limbach or Rotax engine, as the AT-3 by Aero Sp z.o.o of Poland. Rotax-, Lycoming- and Continental-engined versions built in Czech Republic by EV-AT and in Italy by SG Aviation.
