Today was the maiden flight of NTPS' new L-39 N139WS flown by Test Pilot Instructors Yannis Tsolekas and Rigel Hebmann. As part of our mulit-year aircraft refresh program, NTPS recently acquired 2 L-39 Jet Aircraft to supplement the Impala fleet and bring yet another aircraft to the fixed wing fleet. These aircraft are in excellent condition from the fresh paint to the avionics to the hot seats with fresh pyro. The team will soon begin curriculum development sorties with the goal of introducing the aircraft into the P&FQ curriculum this summer once all the FAA approvals are obtained. Its sister ship N186RS is currently undergoing its annual inspection and will also be flying soon.
