AVIOANE CRAIOVA S.A. was established in 1972 for developing, manufacturing and providing product support of military aircraft to Romanian Air Force. The company began by co-operating with former Yugoslavia and developing the joint project of the ground attack aircraft IAR-93 (around than 200 aircrafts were built and entered in service since than).

During the 1980’s, an advanced jet trainer IAR-99 was designed in co-operation with the National Institute for Aerospace, manufactured inhere; the aircraft is still currently in production and in Romanian Air Force service, as a modernized version IAR 99 SOIM. Designed, manufactured in Avioane’s own facilities and certified with MoD’s Flight Test Centre flight test facilities, it is a proof of the company’s outstanding capabilities as an ideal partner in aircraft development and manufacture.

The capabilities cover a wide range of engineering, maintenance, testing and certification to production engineering, design and manufacturing of tools and jigs, manufacturing of aircraft and product support.
