Today, Jihlavan delivers components for a number of domestic and international aircraft companies. Historically, it participated in producing aircraft that were developed in Czechoslovakia by companies like Aero Vodochody or Let Kunovice. A new chapter of the company and its further development has been opened by projects for Airbus, one of the two major aircraft manufacturers in the world.
The Cirrus SR22 is a single-engine four or five-seat compact aircraft manufactured by Cirrus Aircraft in Duluth, Minnesota since 2001. It is a successor to the Cirrus SR20, having a larger wing, higher fuel capacity and more powerful engine.
The SR22 range is the best-selling aircraft for general aviation world-wide. Together with the SR20, they are among the best-selling aircraft of the 21st century.
The hydropneumatic damper of the nose undercarriage is the only hydraulic device in the four-seat Cirrus SR-22 aircraft.
Aircraft sales vary from 300 to 400 pieces a year.
The project has been transferred to Jihlavan based on a trilateral agreement among Technometra Radotín, Cirrus Aircraft and Jihlavan.
Based on this agreement, Cirrus Aircraft has become the owner of the design for the hydropneumatic damper and Jihlavan has become the owner of the mass production documentation.
