Operators across the globe love the L-39.

The aircraft has become the companion of thousands of pilots on a daily basis. And just like you don’t like to see your companion in the hospital for too long, operators and pilots do not like to part from their “Albatrosses“ for a long period of maintenance or a major upgrade.

For this reason, the transition from the L-39 to the re-engined L-39 and subsequently to the fully modernized L-39NG with the new airframe, engine and systems has been designed to take place as efficiently as possible in order to minimize the grounding time of the aircraft. The re-engining of the L-39 will take between 3-4 months, which is less than the general overhaul of most competing jet aircraft.

That’s what we call a smooth transition!
