The company signed a Letter of intent Tuesday for the delivery of 12 L-39NG aircraft and upgrade of six legacy L-39 into the L-39CW variant. It also signed an agreement with SkyTech to deliver 10 L-39NG aircraft with an option for additional six aircraft, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
The L-39NG/CW fleet will be made available by RSW for various customers in its United States based training academy allowing training from ab initio stage up to the operational clearance level, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
The L-39NG fleet will be made available by SkyTech for any customer either in the area of training flight hours, or short, mid and long-term leasing.
The L-39NG is being certified using the European Military Airworthiness Requirements (EMARs) and thus brings a true compatibility and interoperability within EU and NATO operators avoiding any additional certification and cross-border processes. The L-39NG fleet LoI includes a set of simulators and debriefing devices for training and learning process.
The L-39CW Aircraft is a combination existing L-39C aircraft with a new FJ44-4M Williams International Engine and Genesys Aerosystems Avionics. The L-39CW provides solution for current operators by upgrading existing platforms until L-39NG aircraft are delivered. The L-39NG aircraft is a brand-new jet training aircraft with light-attack capabilities designed as a unified, comprehensive training system for modern air forces.
The L-39NG is based on the aerodynamic concept of the current L-39, but utilizes the latest technologies and equipment. Power is provided by the modern FJ44-4M engine supplied with the TAP Blue engine support service. The aircraft's avionics are prepared to train future pilots of 4th and 5th generation aircraft and can be tailored to the customer's requirements. The L-39NG is equipped with five hard-points for weapons. A strategic partner in the L-39NG project is Czech company Omnipol.
