“After seven years of hard work by determined colleagues, we can announce that the company is now profitable. Developing, manufacturing and certifying UAVs is a demanding task, but with a rewarding outcome. I am quietly pleased that we achieved our goal without a single crown of subsidies or debt. I am looking forward to announcing even more positive news soon”, said Ladislav Semetkovský, CEO and majority shareholder.
