NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days will experience the world public debut of the new Czech L-39NG aircraft from the general partner of the event, Aero Vodochody AEROSPACE a.s.

In previous years, the event featured a technology demonstrator of the new aircraft, known as the L-39CW, but this year for the first time the final product will be shown to the public, in addition, in an attractive form with mounted weapon systems. The L-39CW will then serve as its escort for arriving at the Mošnov airport.

“The L-39NG aircraft symbolizes the future of the Czech aviation industry and its public performance is a very prestigious occasion for NATO Days,” says Zbyněk Pavlačík, Chairman of Jagello 2000.

"The cooperation of the Czech Air Force with the domestic aviation industry is of course very important, therefore I am pleased to see the L-39NG aircraft at the Czech Air Force Days. Besides, the L-39NG will be shortly introduced to the armament of the Czech Air Force." Petr Hromek, Commander of the Czech Air Force.

The aircraft Aero L-39NG is based on the design of the original L-39 Albatros, but with use of modern, composite materials. Like its predecessor, the new generation primarily fulfils the function of a training aircraft. However, the L-39NG can also be used to perform battle tasks in low-intensity conflicts. The aircraft can also be equipped with real weapons.
