Slovenia Brand: CATIA
Industry: Aerospace & Defense

Founded over 22 years ago, Slovenia-based Pipistrel designs and manufactures the widest range of advanced light aircrafts in the world. It is the only company in the world that produces light aircraft with electric propulsion.

The Challenge

Pipistrel needed to constantly innovate to produce the fastest, yet most fuelefficient lightweight aircraft on the market

Dassault Systèmes Response

The award-winning company uses CATIA PLM Express and its Composites module for all airplane body design, replacing manual trialand-error methods with highly precise 3D designs


Development of Pipistrel’s new fourseater aircraft, designed entirely with CATIA, has been shortened by 25%
