The successful certification of the L-39NG aircraft in September 2020 became the impetus for the exit of Penta Investments from AERO Vodochody AEROSPACE.

The development and preparation ofthe aircraft's production required more than CZK 3bn. Penta's partner Marek Dospiva stated that the investment group wants to dedicate energy to the key companies in the portfolio. As previously reported by ČIANEWS, the Hungarian company HSC Aerojet Zrt became the owner of AERO. The majority is held by the Hungarian businessman Kristóf Szalay-Bobrovniczky. A minority stake is held by the company OMNIPOL. The owners will control the aircraft manufacturer through Vodochody Holdings HU.
