After undergoing a series of demanding ground tests, first L-39NG full prototype resumed an intense flight test program. Currently the market offers good demand for trainer and light attack jets and the Czech aerospace company Aero Vodochody does not want to miss any sales opportunity.
During the second quarter of 2019, flight prototype with production serial number 7001, presented at NATO Days, underwent ground vibration testing conducted together with Czech Aerospace Research Centre. The tests have been carried out also with installed weapons and therefore they are valid also for Light Attack version. At the same time, the ground static strength tests on prototype 7002 are continuing; at the turn of the year, ground fatigue tests will start on prototype with serial number 7003.
The company says that the L-39NG will be the only one jet trainer on the market with complete syllabus from basic training to advanced and LIFT training.
