On February 1, 2018, was in Ethiopian town Bishoftu (formerly known as Debre Zeyit) officially opened the most state-of-the-art AERO L-39 ground based training system in the world. Grand opening was attended by Chief of the Ethiopian Air Force Gen. Adem Mohammed, Czech Ambassador in Ethiopia Karel Hejč and representatives of VR Group and OMNIPOL.
Major components of the training system as Full Mission

this training system is to provide comprehensive training for student pilots before

interconnected, so formation flight training is possible with ability to
observe pilot performance in FMS on large screens at the classroom.
