Aero Vodochody L-39NG next generation jet trainer highlighted in Czech Republic
Announced last year at the Farnborough Air Show, Aero Vodochody's new jet trainer L-39NG is being deeply highlighted at IDET 2015 exhibition. New L-39NG is focused on development of a next generation of the legendary L-39 Albatros jet trainer. The L-39NG program represents deep modernization of the L-39 Albatros combining latest engine and aircraft systems technology with traditional advantages of legacy L-39s such as excellent easy maintenance and robust design.

The L-39NG multi-role aircraft is an extensive modernisation of the L-39 Albatros jet trainer / ground attack aircraft. It features a lighter and stronger airframe incorporating improved aerodynamics, and selected L-39/159 spares and off-the-shelf components.

The rugged design incorporates redesigned wet wings with integral fuel tanks and power assisted ailerons. The fuel tanks are installed with single-point pressure refuelling system. The L-39NG is also equipped with nose wheel steering, debriefing system, wide track undercarriage, low pressure tyres, an in built health and usage monitoring system, and a variety of optional equipment.

The configurable tandem glass cockpit of the L-39NG aircraft accommodates a crew of two on zero-zero ejection seats and provides increased training effectiveness and bird strike protection. The single-piece canopy offers improved all-round visibility for the crew.

The armed version of the L-39NG multi-role aircraft can be equipped with four blocks of unguided rockets and bombs up to 370kg under the wings. It can also be installed with one under-fuselage weapon pylon to carry a range of armament. It can be optionally fitted with gun pods and reconnaissance pods.

The L-39NG jet trainer aircraft is powered by Williams International FJ44-4M light and fuel efficient turbofan engine, which develops a maximum thrust of 16.87kN and generates low noise signature. The engine features an electrical starting system and dual FADEC systems.

Aero Vodochody will start tests with an engine demonstrator on September 2015.

The L-39NG prototype is scheduled to be unveiled in 2016/2017 and the first deliveries are expected to commence in 2018.
