The Soko 522 was designed by Yugoslav engineers Sostaric, Marjanovic and Curcic at the Ikarus Aircraft Factory in Zemun. The first prototype flew in 1955, after which production was transferred to the Soko Aircraft Factory of Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Production lasted until 1961 and totalled 110 units. It was used as the primary trainer aircraft for the Yugoslavian air force until it was retired in 1978. Production of the Galeb jet trainer and ground-attack aircraft began in 1964, a total of 248 being built, 132 of which were used by the Yugoslav Air Force. Soko developed the J-22 Orao in the former Republic of Yugoslavia, while Avioane Craiova built the J-22 under the designation IAR-93 Vultur in Romania. Some pre-production aircraft were delivered in 1978 to the Air Force Aircraft Testing Facility in Belgrade. Most production J-22 aircraft have been withdrawn from use and 16 of them are currently owned by aviation museums.
