Apart from the undeniable love for flying, military and civil users both have one more thing in common: budget and time restrictions. Therefore, in order to make the aircraft affordable to the widest possible range of users (both in terms of acquisition price and operation cost), the L-39NG offers its users a wide variety of cost and time savings.

a) EFFICIENT TRANSFER FROM L-39 TO L-39NG
  • Maximum utilization of current L-39 fleets thanks to re-engining option (i.e. maximum utilization of funds already invested)
  • Distribution of cash-flow in a longer period due to two stage implementation concept (engine and/or avionics for easy adoption first, brand new L-39NG airframe later, see LINK for more information)
b) LOW TRANSITION COST
  • Compatible with tooling, ground support equipment and related procedures used for the L-39
  • “Easy to Adopt” type – minimum training required for both pilots and ground personnel
  • Compatible with L-39 stores (can be adapted to both Western and Eastern standard equipment)
c) LOW AQUISITION COST
  • Lowest acquisition price unmatched by any other aircraft in its class
  • Acquisition cost comparable to original L-39 and even to current turboprops
  • Wide range of equipment already included in basic configuration
  • Best value for money on the market
d) LOW OPERATION COST
  • Efficient engine with low fuel consumption
  • On-condition maintenance
  • No calendar limitations on most critical components (engine)
  • Operating cost are close to those of turboprop aircraft
e) DECREASING TRAINING COST
  • Capable of deployment in basic training, advanced training and LIFT/OCU training stage
  • While able to provide training on the LIFT and partially OCU level, the L-39NG is much cheaper to operate than double seated fighters of OCUs
