The program, 41 M, better known as Sova, was financed by JUGOIMPORT SDPR, and Utva contracted design, modification, prototype production, testing and certification of aircraft.
This type of aircraft was produced in Utva last year and after 30 years Utva itself succeeded in designing, manufacturing and testing the new aircraft itself.
The owl is intended for training and selection, sport and tourist flying, for air taxis & panoramic sightseeing.
