Quest Aircraft Company is a Japanese-owned aircraft manufacturer located in Sandpoint, Idaho, United States. Quest was started in 2001 to design and provide aircraft suitable for domestic and international humanitarian applications. In February 2015 the company was sold to Setouchi Holdings of Japan. Setouchi had been acting as a dealer for Quest and as a result of that relationship decided to purchase the company. The company was founded primarily for the purpose of creating an aircraft specifically suited for the humanitarian and mission field. Quest Aircraft also works with multiple not-for-profit groups that partner with the company as Quest Mission Team members. The company business model is especially unique: the profits earned by selling the Kodiak commercially are used to subsidize the manufacturing of approximately every tenth aircraft, which is then delivered to a participating not-for-profit organization.
