PROJECT title:

Development of airframe for the L-39NG next generation aircraft
 

Project description:

The aim of the project is to design, to analyse, to produce and to test airframe for the L-39NG aircraft. The airframe consist  of fuselage, wing and tai unit. The objective is the airframe, with following major improvements:

  • Life extension
  • Reduced weight
  • Corrosion protections and surface treatment
  • Birdstrike protection improvement
  • Higher performance canopy transparencies
  • Metallic and composite materials in accordance with latest standards

These airframe improvements will result in reduction of specific fuel consumption and lifecycle cost of L-39NG Aircraft. The project result will be prototype of L-39NG airframe including design and test documentation.
