In 1946, Edouard Joly and Jean Délémontez founded Jodel (Jo for Joly and Del for Délémontez). The two were passionate about aeronautics and mechanics and knew each other before the war. It was in Blagnac that the company Jodel decided to "give wings to the world".
Jodel does not build its planes, it designs them and sells production licenses to the manufacturers with whom it works. Their main manufacturer is Robin. There are a number of Wingly flights in the UK in a Jodel aircraft, and the aircraft is very popular with our French pilots.
