Jihlavan currently delivers components to a number of domestic and international aircraft companies. Historically, it participated in producing aircraft that were developed in Czechoslovakia by companies such as Aero Vodochody and Let Kunovice. A new chapter in the company and its further development has 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 countries in the 1970s and 1980s. To this day, 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 has been a development
partner for all hydraulic power devices within the Technometra group since the end of the 1960s. Today, Jihlavan continues to provide service and spare parts for a resting fleet comprising approx. 700 aircraft.
Jihlavan is engaged in developing the new L39 NG aircraft. 30 types of prototypes for newly developed devices will have been delivered by the end of 2017. Jihlavan is a development partner for aircraft units of wheels, brakes, flight control trim EMA and hydraulic distributors, whose prototypes will have been delivered by the first half of 2018.
Flow supply of all newly developed devices is planned to be realised by the end of 2020.
