Comprehensive L-39 Training System for the Ethiopian Air Force

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 HejĨ and representatives of VR Group and OMNIPOL. Major components of the training system as Full Mission Simulator L-39 (FMS), L-39 Cockpit Procedure Trainer (CPT) and L-39 Education System were delivered and installed within the contract signed in September 2016. Aim of this training system is to provide comprehensive training for student pilots before taking practice in real aircraft. Both simulators (FMS and CPT) are interconnected, so formation flight training is possible with ability to observe pilot performance in FMS on large screens at the classroom.
