Czech Air Force and the premiere of AERO L-39NG at the Aviation Fair


The Pardubice Aviation Fair is regularly a place where the Army of the Czech Republic presents itself.


And 32 year of the Aviation Fair, taking place on the weekend of June 1 and 2, 2024 in Pardubice won`t be an exception. Soldiers will perform for visitors both days in static demonstrations and, of course, in the flight program.

"The Aviation Fair is regularly held at the military airport in Pardubice, so it is not surprising that excellent cooperation with the Army of the Czech Republic works both during the organization and during static and flight demonstrations. This has been the case since 1991, and we are continuing our cooperation this year as well," says Jan Rudzinskyj from the organizing staff of the Aviation Fair. "The Army of the Czech Republic will have an extensive presentation as part of the ground program, where, in addition to planes and helicopters from individual air bases, equipment from ground troops, as well as military firefighters from the Pardubice airport, will be presented. Children competitions included in the rich Children's Day program will also be part of the ground presentation.


Of course, the soldiers will also present themselves in the flight program. Without a doubt, the largest military aircraft will be the CASA 295 twin-engine transport machine from Kbely Air Base. Accompanied by a pair of quick reaction alert JAS-39C Gripens, it will perform the opening flight. After the fly-by, the Gripens will separate and CASA will perform a paratrooper drop and then land at the Pardubice airport. During the day, visitors will be able to visit the interior of this aircraft. Airshow visitors traditionally expect a solo display of the Gripen aircraft from the Čáslav base. It will not be missing this year either. Ondřej Španko will perform with Gripen in the skies of Pardubice. His display was already very dynamic last year, and according to available reports, he modified and added some elements to his display for this year. We have a lot to look forward to, and visitors will certainly not be disappointed by the demonstration of the L-159 Alca aircraft. This machine is a product of Aero Vodochody, and it will present its newest product as well, the L-39NG training machine, at the premiere in the skies of Pardubice. It will be presented in the block of the Pardubice Aviation Training Center together with the long-proven L-39C Albatros. Aviation Fair spectators will thus be able to see a kind of generations exchange, because the L-39NG aircraft will soon expand the fleet of aircraft at the Pardubice CLV," adds Jan Rudzinskyj.
