Senegal To Acquire 4 L-39NGs

The Senegalese Government has announced plans to acquire four Aero Vodochody L-39NG light attack aircraft. The contract will also include the training of pilots and ground crew, spare parts, ground support equipment and logistics support. As well as the light attack role the aircraft will retain their primary training capability.

The L-39NG has recently begun flight testing in the Czech Republic and is an updated version of the venerable Warsaw Pact jet trainer.
