AERO Vodochody AEROSPACE expects a year-on-year doubling of revenues to almost CZK 6bn in 2020. The growth should be boosted mainly by new contracts for aircraft maintenance, increased production within the Airbus A220 programme, and start of serial production of the new L-39NG aircraft. Within the framework of the new L-39NG training and light fighter plane, the company’s objective is to get certification for an advanced training aircraft in the third quarter of 2020. The L-39NG’s industrialisation concept has been prepared and the company will also complete some sales campaigns. Over the past three months, AERO Vodochody AEROSPACE has hired 30 new employees and has over 50 more job vacancies.
