The main area of ​​operation of the air ship model Zlin Z 37T Agro-Turbo is the use in the agricultural sector, where the aircraft used for the treatment of fields and farmland, however, due to the presence in the cockpit of the aircraft two seats, the aircraft also found and used in private aviation, however, here the use of the aircraft was very limited.

The first flight of the multipurpose aircraft Zlin Z 37T Agro-Turbo held in September 1981 years and due to the fact that the plane has successfully coped with all the necessary test trials, the project was soon running well and in series production. During the entire release period, Czechoslovak aircraft manufacturers 51 aircraft were built, of which, to date, there is still only a few fit to flights copies.
