Aero Vodochody L-39NG Advanced Jet Trainer Passed Five Life Cycles Fatigue Test
The New Aero Vodochody L-39NG superior jet coach and lightweight assault plane efficiently handed tough fatigue checks of 5 lifespans simulation. All collectively which means 5 instances 5,000 flight hours in a excessive designed load spectrum. The fatigue checks are working on the third prototype 7003 within the Czech Aviation Analysis Centre (VZLÚ). The testing prototype has proven that the L-39NG ought to have 3 times longer lifespan than the Chilly Warfare period Aero L-39 Albatros jet coach.
After 5 confirmed life cycles of the L-39NG plane, the whole non-destructive inspection of the plane airframe has began, than the fatigue check will proceed. A sixth lifespan simulation is deliberate for early 2022, adopted by a residual power check with as much as 120 % of the restrict load. After that, further fatigue cycles of the touchdown gears will comply with. The touchdown gear is designed to be extraordinarily resistant. Lastly, Aero Vodochody and VZLÚ will cooperate with the Czech Technical College in Prague on airframe evaluation.
The Aero L-39NG (“Subsequent Technology”) is a Czech turbofan-powered navy coach and lightweight fight plane at the moment beneath improvement by Aero Vodochody. The L-39NG plane is a contemporary and efficient mild jet succesful to serve in a task of sunshine assault and/or unified, complete coaching system for contemporary air forces. The L-39NG relies on the aerodynamic idea of the present L-39 with optimized options to scale back resistance and enhance effectivity and makes use of the most recent applied sciences and gear.
Energy is offered by the fashionable FJ44-4M engine provided with the TAP Blue engine help service to make sure unprecedented airworthiness and predictable upkeep prices. The plane’s avionics are ready to coach future pilots of 4th and fifth era plane and will be tailor-made to the shopper’s necessities. The L-39NG is provided with 5 hard-points for weapons. The plane additionally includes a broad vary of simulation applied sciences, together with the mixing into high-tech tactical simulation centres with the objective to extend coaching effectivity.
