Item 1. Security and Issuer
This Schedule 13D (as may be amended and supplemented from time to time, the “Schedule 13D”) relates to the shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Shares”), of Innovative Solutions and Support, Inc., a corporation incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (the “Company”). The principal executive offices of the Company are located at 720 Pennsylvania Drive, Exton, Pennsylvania 19341.
Item 2. Identity and Background
This Schedule 13D is being filed by Christopher Harborne and Klear Kite LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Klear Kite,” and each of Mr. Harborne and Klear Kite are referred to herein individually as a “Reporting Person,” and, together, as the “Reporting Persons”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
Mr. Harborne is a businessman and investor. He is a citizen of both Great Britain and Thailand (with his Thai citizenship held under his Thai name, Chakrit Sakunkrit). His business address is 23F M Thai Tower, All Seasons Place, 87 Wireless Road, Bangkok 10300 Thailand.
The principal business of Klear Kite is serving as a holding company for investments by Mr. Harborne. Mr. Harborne is the sole member of Klear Kite and thus controls Klear Kite. The address of the principal business and the principal office of Klear Kite is 1201 Orange Street, Suite 600, Wilmington, Delaware, 19801.
During the last five years, neither of the Reporting Persons has been: (i) convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.
Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration
The aggregate purchase price of the 2,026,445 Shares beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons is approximately $16,439,732.97, including brokerage commissions. All of the Shares were acquired with Mr. Harborne’s personal funds.
Item 4. Purpose of Transaction
Mr. Harborne is a long-time owner of, and investor in, companies operating in the aviation, aerospace and defense industries. The Reporting Persons purchased the Shares reported herein for investment purposes. 
The Reporting Persons believe that the Company makes a valuable contribution to the aerospace industry as an independent innovative company and also believe that the Shares represent an attractive investment. The Reporting Persons expect to review from time to time their investment in the Company and depending upon the availability of Shares at prices that would make the purchase of additional Shares desirable, the Reporting Persons may endeavor to increase their position in the Company through, among other things, the purchase of Shares on the open market, in private transactions, or otherwise, on such terms and at such times as the Reporting Persons may deem advisable. The Reporting Persons wish to be constructive and supportive shareholders of the Company and, as the Reporting Persons have previously communicated to management of the Company, they have no plan or intention to seek control of the Company or to combine any business owned by Mr. Harborne with the Company.
The Reporting Persons have engaged in communications with the management of the Company and expect in the future to engage in further communications with management and the Company’s Board of Directors, including without limitation, regarding the Company and its operations.




Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer
(a), (b) Klear Kite, and by virtue of being the sole member of Klear Kite, Mr. Harborne each beneficially owns 2,026,445 Shares, which are held directly by Klear Kite. Such Shares represent approximately 11.7% of the outstanding Shares of the Company. Klear Kite and Mr. Harborne share voting power and investment power over all such Shares.
For purposes of this Item 5(a) and (b), the percentages are calculated based upon (x) the number of Shares beneficially owned by each Reporting Person, divided by (y) 17,276,213 Shares outstanding as of July 29, 2022, as reported in the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2022, filed with the SEC on August 12, 2022.
(c) Information concerning transactions in the Shares effected by the Reporting Persons during the past sixty days is set forth on Schedule A hereto and is incorporated herein by reference. All of the transactions in the Shares were effected in the open market through various brokerage entities.
(d) No person other than the Reporting Persons is known to have the right to receive, or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or proceeds from the sale of, the Shares beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons.
(e) Not applicable.
Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer
The Reporting Persons are parties to an agreement with respect to the joint filing of this Schedule 13D and any amendments thereto, pursuant to which they have agreed to file this Schedule 13D jointly in accordance with the provisions of Rule 13d-1(k)(1) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
