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.
This is a Czech passenger and transport aircraft designed for regional transport. The first prototype took off in 1969. The plane is able to land on small and untended airports, and can be operated in the most extreme environments, from +50 °C to −50 °C, and is certified for IFR flights. More than 1,100 pieces have manufactured, with the major customer being the Soviet company Aeroflot; however, these planes were also delivered to Asia, Africa and South America. The new generation aircraft took off for the first time in 2015 and can fly longer distances and hold greater loads compared to the original aircraft.
Jihlavan was a development partner for most power hydraulic devices in the Technometra group at the end of the 1960s.
For the new generation L410 aircraft, we have newly developed 12 devices for the undercarriage in a modern stainless steel design, power-assisted steering of the nose undercarriage, and flight control trim EMA for flaps and ailerons.
The entire development, including successful certification tests for the newly developed devices, was carried out at the beginning of 2017.
The final aircraft OEM Aircraft Industries (LET) resumed production of the former L410 in 2006, and has achieved yearly sales of 12–15 aircraft. Flow supply for the new generation L410NG will be realized in 2018.
