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.

CASA C-295

Bezpečně přistává díky našim aktivátorům podvozku

The CASA C-295 is a two-engine military transport aircraft made by the Spanish company EADS-CASA. CASA C-295 aircraft are produced in several versions. The aircraft is able to transport up to 71 armed soldiers (or 49 paratroopers) or three light vehicles, such as Land Rovers. The Czech Army air force has received 4 pcs of the C-295M aircraft.

  • The supply of loading ramp blocking actuators for the CASA C295M are part of the BTP project for the company CESA AERO.
  • In commercial practice, a military specialization represents lower and less predictable volumes of sales, resulting in lower pressure on price compared to the prices of commercial aircraft.
  • Jihlavan is the single-source supplier of the loading ramp blocking actuator.

This was one of the pilot projects for the company CESA Aero for BTP supplies for the Airbus/EADS supply chain and represents a significant step in fulfilling our long-term business strategy. With respect to the military nature of the project, the technical demands on the devices are very high in relation to technical properties and testing conditions. Aircraft deliveries vary from 10 to 25 pieces a year.
