To ensure that the Royal Romanian Air Force (the Aeronautica Regală Romxnă, or ARR) would be supplied with aircraft without reliance on foreign producers, the Romanian government subsidized the creation of three major aircraft manufacturers in the interbellum period. The first was Societatea pentru Exploatări Tehnice (SET) which was founded in Bucharest in 1923. Next came IAR, which was formed in Braşov since 1925. Finally there was ICAR (xntreprinderea de Construcţii Aeronautice Romxneşti), which was created in Bucharest in 1932, and operated the factory at Brasov known as ICA-Brasov (xntreprinderea de Construcţii Aeronautice - Brasov).

One of the engineers designing IAR aircraft in the early 1930s was Elie Carafoli.

During World War II the IAR 80 and IAR 81 fighter aircraft were designed and produced at IAR facilities.

In 1945 and 1947, under the coordination of Radu Manicatide and Radu Mărdărescu, IAR developed a microcar, named M.R., and an automobile.

Since 1968, IAR has produced more than 370 helicopters (IAR 316 and IAR 330), 830 gliders, including motor gliders, and 140 aircraft.

In 2000, IAR created, with Eurocopter, Eurocopter Romania, holding a 49% stake in it.
