The Aviation Institute is reorganized together with the entire Romanian aeronautical industry into several research and development and specialized industrial entities, the resulting ones thus becoming stock companies.

Subsonic Wind Tunnel
1985 – 1990
The Aviation Institute

INCREST’s name was changed and became The Institute for Aerospace Scientific Research and Technological Engineering -ICSITAV.

ICSITAV is transformed into The Aviation Institute, becoming the main Research and Design institution in the aeronautical field in Romania.

Schlieren effect
1968 – 1985

The Institute of Fluid Mechanics becomes ICPAS - Institute of Aerospace Research and Design, and soon receives the name IMFCA - Institute of Fluid Mechanics and Aerospace Research.

IMFCA is reorganized under the name of INCREST - The National Institute for Technological and Scientific Creation, being associated under this name with the most important achievements in the fields of research and aerospace industry of Romania.

The first military jet aircraft made in Romania
1949 – 1968
The Institute of Fluid Mechanics

The Applied Mechanics Institute within the Romanian Academy is established.

The Institute of Fluid Mechanics becomes its own entity focused on aeronautical and space fields.
