During the modernization, new digital avionics, ejection systems, communications and objective control equipment were installed on the aircraft.
L-39 is intended for initial training of cadets in piloting techniques in simple and difficult weather conditions, day and night, training in elements of combat use, as well as training flight personnel of educational institutions and military units.
‘Flying on the L-39 aircraft is the first step in the development of aviation in general. For each cadet, an independent flight is a significant day. This means that in the future he will be able to get admission to the next stages for simple, complex aerobatics, en route flights, in the clouds, at low altitude, for combat use against ground and air targets.’ said the deputy commander of the aviation training center, Lieutenant Colonel Maksat Burataev
