Pipistrel Company Tour - What you can expect to see during a visit


The main entrance - this is the first thing you see when you arive to our facility.
The flags greet you from the right and the facade of the new building with solar panels is in front of you.


The entrance to the administrative complex.
Here you enter the building - ring the bell and we will invite you inside!

The display cabinets and the trophies in the offices corridor give you a short
overview of our products, history and greatest achievements.


Many of Pipistrel's achievements adorn the walls of their facility.

The small conference room


This is where the aeroplanes are being made! The production line is U-shaped, with the warehouse right in the middle.


The metal workshops and the welding workshop. Here we mostly make tools and molds for aircraft production.
The aeroplanes are made of high-technology composite materials, which are much lighter than metal.

Pipistrel Sinus aircraft production line


The parts are organised in two ways - the smaller, more sensitive and easier to lose parts are
stored in a robotic closet, the rest are stored on the shelves, sorted by the sectors on shelves with
sector numbers. To keep track of them, we use a system of barcodes - every single piece gets
a unique barcode as soon as it is accepted into the warehouse.


The storage place for wings on the hangar wall and a view of the hangar.


This is where the finished aircraft wait for the testing and the final delivery.

at the back of the complex, there are chambers for fine preparation of specific parts (for example sanding)
before they are mounted on the finished aircraft


Multiple secure storage areas are located throughout the complex


In the testing facility there is the only 8-axis robot in Slovenia at the moment. 
It is used to make prototypes and 3D models.


Pipistrel engineering area for research and development and product support


Rotax approved factory workshop, Pipistrel is the general Rotax distributor
for several European countries


On the roof of the complex, there is one of the largest solar power plants in Slovenia.
All the balcony railings are fitted with solar panels also.


Even the guard rails at Pipistrel are utilized for solar collection

The majority of the energetic systems are also housed on the second floor:
The heat pump, the co-generation unit, the central supervisory sistem which regulates the
systems and all the pipes that lead into different areas of the building.
