Czech company Aero Vodochody introduced its newest military airplane L-39NG. The airplane should play the role of a light battleship and at the same time serve to fully train modern air force pilots.


The machine design is based on the original aerodynamic concept of the L-39 Albatros aircraft from the Aero Vodochody workshop, which originated in the 1960s. The airplane is powered by highly advanced FJ44-4M engine supplied with the TAP Blue maintenance system to provide unprecedented maneuverability and predictability of maintenance costs. The L-39NG is equipped with five suspension points for carrying the equipment. The airplane features a wide range of simulation technologies, including engaging in a highly modern tactical simulation center to increase training efficiency.
