The formal roll-out of the L 410 NG.

Aircraft Industries company celebrates roll-out of new prototype L 410 NG aircraft

Aircraft Industries Company, celebrated today rollout ceremony of the prototype of L 410 NG model, which is substantially upgraded turboprop commuter, inheriting the best of L-410UVP-E20 aircraft, which is being currently serially produced and newly offering significantly improved all major operational characteristics. The aircraft is equipped with advanced avionics and build by modern production technologies.

The first flight of the prototype is expected shortly after Roll out. Thanks to the new wing structure, with integral fuel tank and increased fuel capacity, the L 410 NG enables significantly longer maximum range (2500 km) and endurance (10 hours). The all-metal, high-wing twin turboprop can transport 19 passengers and thanks to its increased maximum payload (2154 kg/4749 lb) and larger front luggage compartment increasing the total luggage compartments volume to 2,98 m3/105,24 cu.ft, the aircraft can carry up to 400 kg more luggage/cargo.

The L 410 NG aircraft is powered by new more powerful GE H85 engines with maximum take-off power 850 HP and AV-725 propellers. The new engine gearbox enables significant external and internal noise reduction due to lower maximum propeller speed reduced from 2080 to 1950 RPM. Thanks to engine power increase maximal cruise speed will rise to 417 km/hr TAS. The state of art Glass Cockpit Technology with the latest avionics from Garmin (G3000) provides the highest level of flight safety and comfort for the crew. L 410 NG with the most spacious fuselage in its category (passenger cabin volume 17,9m3/632 cu.ft) will also offer completely modernized passenger cabin interior and passenger seats with the highest standard of comfort and providing similarly as the L 410 UVP-E20 model maximum versatility and opportunity to use the aircraft in number of versions for a number of various types of operation. Service life of the aircraft will be also significantly increased (30 000 FH and/or cycles as minimum).

The L 410 NG is, in its standard version, intended for short-haul transport from remote and undeveloped areas to major cities. Interest in this model might have not only private airlines but also governmental and non-governmental organizations. Aircraft Industries plans to produce up to thirty L 410 NG aircraft per year in the future. Thanks to the wide body passenger compartment and endurance the NG will be an ideal platform for the Maritime Patrol and Surveillance version.

In the coming years the company will focus on finishing the L 410 NG certification with the goal to start its serial production in 2017 year.
