The S.P.P. Z-37 Cmelak agricultural aircraft was designed as the successor of the Brigadyr. Flown for the first time on 30 June 1963, series production started during the spring of 1964. The power plant of the Z-37 was a 310 hp M462 nine-cylinder radial air-cooled engine. The model developed over the years. The 365 hp M601Z Turbine powered version Z-137T was introduced in 1981. Z-137T prototype was flown first in September 1981.

On 10 June 1993, S.P.P. Z-137T Agro Turbo OK-VIH was photographed at the airfield of Bystrice in the Czech Republic. Air Special, one of the successors of Agrolet, operated this crop sprayer. A number of Zlin 37T and 137T were exported to New Zealand, and among them the OK-VIH. This aircraft was registered ZK-VIH, and is owned by Super Air at Rukuhia, in the North Island of NZ.
