UAC showed the upgraded TCB L-39 Albatross

The Myasishchev Experimental Machine-Building Plant (EMZ, part of the UAC) is completing the modernization of the main L-39 training aircraft, used for the initial training of future pilots in aviation schools of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.


The upgraded aircraft received a new Russian-made avionics, a new color with domestic enamels, the engines remained the same. Work is underway to replace components with Russian counterparts. After the completion of modernization, the aircraft will be transferred to the control tests of the Ministry of Defense. The choice of EMZ as the contractor for the modernization of the aircraft is due to the fact that since 1997 the plant has been providing design support for the operation and repair of L-39.

As part of the replacement of non-repairable and obsolete components, the aircraft received a new avionics of completely Russian production. (...) painting the car with domestic enamels with high weather resistance, strength and elasticity

- says the KLA message.

Note that despite the statements of the Russian Ministry of Defense on replacing the L-39 in the educational institutions with Russian Yak-130s, Czechoslovak-made aircraft continue to be the main aircraft for initial flight training. The Yak-130 was expensive, but its procurement continues. To date, according to some reports, in the Russian Aerospace Forces are in service 154 L-39 and 107 Yak-130.

            Without any irony!
            Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems to me that the initial flight training in general can and should begin at PO-2. Cheap, cheerful and safe!

          Well, judging by the fact that you don’t have a tear-off calendar on your desk, there’s a desk calendar on your desk, and the battery is in your cell phone, since you can’t look there, most likely.
          And at the expense of the plane, this is the right way. They must be used until the power elements are completely worn out. There should be many training machines, and since there is no full replacement for Albatross, it’s not worth picking, suitable machines should be modernized and then serve as a “training desk”

      About avionics, you prefer not to notice? Victory is not victory, but ordinary work is going on. There are training apparatuses, kerosene is present, apparatuses fly, the boys are put on the wing. And domestic enamels are also not the last thing.

    The L-39 is much simpler and cheaper to operate and maintain than the Yak-130, but the Yak-130 provides a unique opportunity to train pilots as if operating a combat aircraft.

    In my opinion, ideally, you should have a Yak-130 for senior courses and something like L-39 for elementary pilot training.

      But this question had to be asked earlier. When the terms of reference for the 130th formulated. In general, Khrushchev’s mistake is to give the Czechs a niche in the CMEA for training aircraft. Despite the fact that the Yak-30 was by and large a masterpiece. And L-29, Spark did not lie nearby. Well, the Czechs used the head start time to the full and failed all L-39.

    I didn’t know that they were Ukrainian .... (thought that they were Chezhsky). Aircraft for training is very suitable (although some of them use it as a ground attack aircraft ... well, those who themselves are not capable of creating.)
    Of course, the Yak-130, so far, is expensive. It all depends on the advancement of the taxi drivers (on their education and dedication, and not on the benefit of their place). In theory, to learn to play, you need to immediately use a high-quality (expensive) instrument, however, - where is the money, Zin?

    The color is kind of strange. The camouflage of our equipment is a separate and indefinite topic in general, there is a disagreement in everything. Since his service in the 90s, such a mess has noticed who is looking for something. It looks like not a regular army, but a bunch of people who are looking for something. aviation, maybe it’s worth following the example of amers, and then the nose is white, and the rest, who has some kind of paint, will be implored, this impression develops.

    A yak should cost more than Albatross, compare its technology and L-39, day and night. The main thing is that both the one and the other benefit, that the cadets become pilots, they may soon be needed as a country.

    But is it really difficult for the editorial office to make a request to the Ministry of Defense and get an official answer that it is better for the fatherland to repair old, not our “air tickets” or finally finance a new one, and train cadets on new airplanes - Yak 158, MIG-AT, SR-10 , Yak-152. Or is it more interesting to exaggerate rumors on this issue.

      They forgot about Mig-AT, as the French left the project. Shekma engines were supposed there. On the Yak -152 engines RED A03T. (import. German, but they comply with sanctions) .. At the CP-10 Ukrainian AI-25 ..
      True, there was the Saturn engine AL-55I (India ordered HJT-36 for its TCB, and then began to produce it licensed) they tested it on Mig-AT and seemed to have to remake the SR-10 for it. Yak-158 is not even on the OKB website now
      There are no engines for them .. And there is no money either. What is the rollback from these Cossacks? But with a drone for a billion fool laughing yes there. There is something to buy a villa and Bentley)))

    Yak-130 turned out to be expensive


    it is expensive only in comparison with the repair of old L-39s. Which is understandable in itself, but patching up junk in the end is more expensive in the end, if you omit the fact that at one fine moment you can stay with a bunch of unbreakable trash at airfields.
    Therefore, the Yak-130 is the future and the L-39 is the past.

      "Moscow was not built right away." Gradually move from the past to the future. "Jacob" is still riveting. Well, the initial training aircraft is still needed. Be it even the L-39, even the Yak-152. In any case, the pilot must first be taught to "walk," and then to "run and ride a bicycle." When that training began in general with gliders.

        I didn’t fly either one or the other (the handle is not mine at all, although I’m not refusing to spin the barrels-loops on the 52nd. I don’t refuse) ... You need to have everything that can be in service as a STR (aircraft of the first training. ), even spoiled by "domestic enamels")

    This is how it turns out: either money should be allocated in real volumes, or a mid-level aircraft should be produced between the Yak-130 and the Yak 152

    You ride past Armavir, and I live from birth. For a year and a half, Elok has not been with us. Even available at the airport. Only the Yak-130 and several MiG-29s. But about flying all the time - it's true. They buzz from morning to night, and often at night)). The benefit is not MiG -23.
