Pipistrel Wins 194-Aircraft Contract

Pipistrel, a light-aircraft manufacturer based in Slovenia, has won a contract to supply India’s military with 194 copies of its Virus SW 80 Garud two-seat trainer. “This is without a doubt the largest contract in the entire 26-year history of Pipistrel,” said Ivo Boscarol, Pipistrel’s owner and general manager. The company will produce about seven airplanes per month, over 30 months, to fulfill the contract, with deliveries starting in mid-2016. “This means that for the next two and a half years, half of Pipistrel's production capacity is sold out,” Boscarol said.
