RMAF to receive eight Aermacchi MB-339CM jet trainers at LIMA 2009

The Royal Malaysian Air Force will take delivery of eight Aermacchi MB-339CM jet fighter trainers at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (Lima) 2009. The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) chief Gen Datuk Seri Rodzali Daud said that RMAF had ordered trainers from Alenia Aermacchi S.P.A, Italy in 2006.

Rodzali said the RMAF would use the Alenia Aermacchi MB-339CM as the lead-in fighter trainer to prepare Malaysian pilots for air combat by capitalising its excellent characteristics as it offers a complete and effective training.

The Alenia Aermacchi MB-339CM is an advanced trainer to prepare RMAF fighter pilots to fly new generation fighter aircraft equipped with an advanced avionic system.
