J-5 Marco is the fifth consecutive desing by Jarosław Janowski. It was designed in the years 1978-80. Unlike previous Janowski's aircraft the J-5 had advanced technological features. A middle-wing airframe with pusher propeller was built of composites (glass fibre, resin) fitted with a V-tail and a retractable monowheel landing gear. It had a finely tuned aerodynamic shape.

The building of the prototype lasted until 1983 and was financed by the firm Alpha (its CEO being the former top Polish car racer Sobiesław Zasada) located in Kraków. Serial production of kit planes started in the mid-1980s at Marco-Electronic of Zgierz.

The example registered as SP-YAC belonged to the late Józef Gorszczyński, one of the most notable pilots of the Aero Club of Silesia. It was loaned in 2011 r. by the pilot's daughter Ms. Halina Gorszczyńska.
