Today, Jihlavan delivers components for a number of domestic and international aircraft companies.

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 L39 is one of the first types of second generation jet trainers with turbofan engines developed by Aero Vodochody. This aircraft was part of the air force fleets of about 30 states in the 1970s and 1980s. Right up until today, it remains the most used jet trainer in the world.
It is a universal aircraft, designed for basic, advanced and combat flight training. In some versions it can also be used as a light combat aircraft.
For the first generation of aircraft, Jihlavan was a development partner for all hydraulic power devices within the Technometra group at the end of 1960s. Today, Jihlavan continues to provide service and spare parts for a resting fleet comprising approx. 700 aircraft.
