The KAPPA KP-2UR SOVA is a side-by-side two-seat low-wing ultralight aeroplane. KAPPA Ltd. was established in 1991 in the Czech republic. In 1994 the development of the all-metal UL aircraft KP-2U SOVA was started. Three prototypes were built: two for the test flights and one for the strength tests. The first test flight of the SOVA was done in May 1996. In September 1997 the aircraft obtained the type certificate by the UL-2 regulations from the Air Amateur Association of the Czech republic. In June 1977, KAPPA77 a.s. was founded and the KP-2U entered serial production. After the KAPPA 77 a.s. was declared bankruptcy on 16 February 2005, the company Jihlavan airplanes, s.r.o. was founded on 2 March 2005 with the main objective – to proceed in the production of the ultralight aircraft KP 2U SOVA. On 1 April 2005, the Jihlavan airplanes, s.r.o. became the holder of the manufacture rights, intellectual properties, etc. of the KP-2U. Over 160 airplanes of the Kappa KP-2U versions were built. After Jihlavan took over the production of the aircraft it was renamed as the Rapid KP-2U.

The 2002-built Kappa KP-2UR Sova c/n 6879H/2002 was registered first OK-HUU 62 in Czech. The airframe was transferred to the Netherlands and registered PH-3V2 on 15 April 2004. Sova PH-3V2 is a KP-2UR with retractable landing gear. The airframe is powered by a Rotax 912ULS engine. Kappa KP-2UR Sova PH-3V2 was photographed at the MLA-aerodrome Stadskanaal in Vledderveen, the Netherlands.
