,,Lasta -95 “ advances training aircraft

,,Lasta -95" aircraft is designes for selection ,initial and basic training of pilots,it offers low landing and takeoff speeds and pilot-friendly handling ,forgiving potential errors by inexperiences pilots.

The aircraft was designed in compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations (F.A.R. –Part 23: Airworthiness Standards), namely:

  •  BASIC VERSION OF THE AIRCRAFT is built against the requirements for aerobatic category loads of (nz_max = 6.0, nz_min = -3).
  •  ARMED VERSION OF THE AIRCRAFT is built against the requirements for utility category with loads of (nz_ max = 4.4, nz_ min = -1.8).

  With its specifications and updated avionics, the aircraft will ensure full pilot training for all elements of airplane application including:

  • basic flying,
  • figure flying,
  • navigation flying,
  • basic elements of night flying,
  • category II instrumental flight,
  • basic elements of gunning, rocketing and bombing (GRB)
  • Light close air support of counterinsurgency operations and area
  • patrol / light attack missions

Lasta-95 landing gear is equipped with mechanical emergency  system for landing gear extension (in the event of failure of hydraulics). This mechanical system ensures positive extending and locking in extended position of all three  struts, at horizontal aircraft speeds up to  180 km/h.Minimizing of structural mass was achieved by application of advanced stress calculation methods including numerical simulations to meet strength and rigidity requirements. Aircraft fuselage structural stress was verified by testing, confirming the adopted concept andapproach for de-dimensioning of structural components.
