Saab has placed an order with Czech aerospace company AERO Vodochody for the production of NATO pylons for the Gripen aircraft system. Transfer of production will commence at the Aero facilities at Vodochody in the Czech Republic in autumn this year.

Aero tells ANN Saab also recently signed a joint working agreement with Aero establishing a mutual cooperation concerning marketing and sales of the L-159 Combat and Training System. The agreement was also to identify manufacturing work packages (MWP) between Saab and Aero.

"We highly value the continuation of cooperation with Saab, recently confirmed within our military program by support of the L-159 Program and today joining the Gripen project," said Igor Hulak, President of Aero. "Our aim is to gradually strengthen our position on the aerostructures market, reaching interesting orders, both in military and civil aviation technology. We are extremely pleased to receive this order from Saab, extending our portfolio of customers within our aerostructures program."

"Aero Vodochody is an important partner for our Gripen offset program in the Czech Republic. This order for production of NATO pylons demonstrates the close collaboration we have with Aero Vodochody.
