AERO Vodochody has connected all parts of the body of the first aircraft L-39NG to the final shape. The structure of the aircraft is now complete from 70%. The first L-39NG with the body number 7001 is now heading the roll-out planned for October 2018. The body of the aircraft consists of 3,365 parts and 90% of them are new ones, while 10% are taken over from its predecessor L-39 Albatros. The L-39NG will be connected with a wing right after the final body assembly. This will take place in September together with the integration of key systems.
