Czech L-39NG combat training aircraft passed certification

The new L-39NG combat trainer, developed by the Czech company Aero Vodochody, has completed certification, the corresponding document has been issued to the military aviation Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic. This was reported by the press service of the company.


It is noted that the L-39NG became one of the first aircraft certified according to new supranational military standards (EMAR 21 and EMACC), which means that its certification is recognized by all military structures of the EU and NATO. In total, as part of the tests, about 300 test flights were carried out on two flight prototypes, as well as extensive ground tests on two other samples.

This is great news for the L-39NG and for the entire Czech aviation industry. Obtaining the type certificate is an important step in the development of the aircraft and at the same time an important message for our customers. I would like to thank all those who have contributed to this exceptional success.

- said in a statement.

L-39NG certification was supposed to begin last summer, but the company decided to postpone it to the third quarter of 2020 due to the company's desire to skip the intermediate certification stage for an initial flight training aircraft and immediately enter the certification stage for an extended pilot training aircraft.

L-39NG (NG - next generation, new generation) is the newest version of the Czechoslovak combat-training aircraft L-39 Albatros, made the first flight in the 1968 year and produced for the Air Force of the USSR and the countries of the socialist camp. Its updated version of the L-159, developed in the 90-s, is in service with the Czech, Hungarian, Iraqi air forces, and is also used by the US private military company Draken International.

The new aircraft received a composite wing and lost additional fuel tanks, which were located on the base Albatros wingtips. Instead of the Soviet jet engine AI-25TL, the upgraded American FJ39-44M was installed on the L-4NG.

Also on the L-39NG installed new avionics of the company Genesys Aerosystems and the indicator on the windshield Speel Praha. In total, more than half of the components and assemblies of the aircraft are replaced by new ones.

The length of the L-39NG is 12 meters, and the wingspan is 9,6 meters. The maximum take-off weight of the training aircraft is 5,8 tons. It can reach speeds of up to 775 kilometers per hour and fly over a distance of thousands of kilometers to 2,6. The aircraft is equipped with five suspension points for different types. weapons total weight to 1,2 tons.

    For completeness, the price tag would be announced. The L-39 was distinguished by a completely democratic price. It would be nice to compare with the Yak-130 and the Chinese L-15.
    And so the "news" of 2014

      Generally interesting .... despite the fact that the Yak130 is a more advanced machine. But with the ruble exchange rate, it may be the same.

          Chinese 10

          A Chinese supersonic radar with AFAR, with such a modernization, the Yak-130 will be released under 25. A Czech should be cheaper. Indeed, with the Yak-130 on the market, and the Chinese and the Italian with the Korean, the Czechs have found their niche. Order book for 100 boards. At the same time, both private companies and government orders. Didn't find the price tag, Singapore Air Force ordered a little. And this is a rich buyer, and the F-15S does not disdain.

              You need to know what is included in the prices ..... simulators, training, etc. And the ruble is falling. And the cost is in rubles.

    Once we flew L-39 Albatros from an airfield near our city. Then, with the collapse of the USSR, everything stopped. Only the parachute section remained.

    Yes, within the framework of the CMEA they gave the Czechs this niche, and pushed their best Yak-30 / 50s.

      For most of the pilots of the USSR, and the Russian Federation, this wonderful machine gave a ticket to the sky. An excellent aircraft for initial training. The Czechs will still collect dividends on it.

        _Military_. For civilians, the initial operation began with the Yak-18 and continued with the An-2.

    Who needs it in the West? It was during the USSR that more than 2800 L-39 vehicles were produced. Now the Czech Republic is a member of NATO, and NATO does not need it, that's a paradox

          The VD market is filled with L-39. But there is no more VD and who will buy the L-39 NG? Moreover, with turbojet engines and systems of NATO countries. And the old turbojet engine is produced by Ukraine.

            L-39 has already exhausted its resource, or now, you need to gradually replace

    so stop ..... I really said (wrote) that the plane is bad and ha ha ha ????? WHERE??? In my opinion, a non-professional in terms of price / quality ratio, this is an excellent plane .... even a magnificent one .... And the proof of this is the number of Elok flying. I kind of hinted that ELka as a variation of a combat aircraft is better than Super Tucano and that many will be able to afford to replace the park. Look, as I understand it, Grygorych bought the Yak-130 not only as training aircraft, but also very likely with a DB as combat aircraft ... and they are cheaper than dryers
