Zmaj (Serbian Cyrillic: Змај) officially named Fabrika aeroplana i hidroaviona Zmaj (English: Airplane and seaplane factory Zmaj) was a Yugoslav aircraft manufacturer. It was founded in 1927 and it was the third aeronatical factory in Serbia. At the beginning it manufactured aircraft under French license, and in 1932 it started with local planes designed by Jovan Petrović and Dragoljub Šterić. Several types of aircraft were manufactured by Zmaj, among them passenger Spartans for the domestic airliner Aeroput. Zmaj workshops manufactured in total 359 aircraft up until 1946, when the factory stopped manufacturing for aviation industry purposes and the company was nationalised and merged with Rogožarski into Ikarus.[1]
