Fatigue test confirms longer lifespan of the Next Generation L-39

Another phase of the fatigue test of the new L-39NG jet aircraft from the Czech manufacturer Aero Vodochody was successfully completed at the Czech Aerospace Research Centre in Prague.


The prototype completed the third life cycle ground test which confirmed that the lifespan of the new aircraft will be significantly longer than of its predecessor L-39 Albatros.


The new L-39NG received its international type certification in September 2020.
