Elbit Systems upgraded the Royal Thai Air Force’s L-39 aircraft. We installed a new avionics suite including advanced cockpit, debriefing system and Western weapons capability. The system was tailored as close as possible to the F-16 operational concept, enabling the L-39 to perform as Lead-In Trainer for the F-16.
The program included a full Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) package including technical and air crew (including instructor pilots training). The L-39 has accumulated more than 50,000 flight hours in the Royal Thai Air Force.
