Corvus Hungary LLC is an aircraft manufacturer that was founded in 2011 to produce the Corvus Fusion aircraft.


Started in 2004, originally named Corvus Aircraft Ltd and based in Ballószög, Hungary,[1][2] the company consisted of five employees including Managing Director Tamás Gecse and Chief Engineer Andras Voloscsuk.[3] The company developed the Corvus Corone Mk 1 aircraft.[4]

Corvus Aircraft began development of the UL Corvus Corone MK II in 2006 and had its first company presence at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA.[4]

Corvus Aircraft debuted its Corvus Phantom aircraft in 2007.[4] Corvus Aircraft also signed a contract with Red Bull for developing a new airplane, the Corvus Racer 540, for Peter Besenyei designed especially for air racing.[5]
