Viperjet Inks Model Licensing Agreement


If you have admired the Viperjet kit aircraft and believed you would not be able to own one, here is your chance, at least the chance to own a scale model of the real thing. Viper Aircraft Corporation and Skygate Collection GmbH & CO KG of Germany have signed a preferred merchant license agreement that will allow Skygate to develop and sell all current and future Viperjet aircraft designs for the model builders’ market.

The companies will work together to produce the most authentic Viperjet flight model achievable, with Skygate receiving direct support and access to technical resources from Viper Aircraft.

“The popularity of the Viperjet aircraft with flight model (radio controlled) builders has exceeded our wildest expectations. It is our pleasure to work with Skygate Collection GmbH & CO KG in developing an authentic representation of the Viperjet family of aircraft for the flight model industry. Their quality product and attention to detail is really what attracted us to their company,” said Scott Hanchette, president, Viper Aircraft.

The agreement was a win for Skygate as well. “It was a logical step forward for our organization to build closer relationships with developers and manufacturers of the full-size aircraft such as Viper Aircraft Corporation,” said Stefan Volker, managing director of Skygate Collection GmbH & CO KG.

“As we have already been in contact for some years with Viper Aircraft Corporation, the preferred license agreement for Skygate is a further milestone for closer cooperation, added Volker. With this license agreement, Skygate Collection GmbH & CO KG sees a positive future developing any new airplane designs from Viper Aircraft with a greater level of detail for our popular Skygate Collection.”
