Aero Vodochody is promoting its L-39NG jet trainer and light-attack platform here at Expodefensa 2019 for the first time, and the company is in talks with Colombia and Mexico about providing the aircraft.

A company official told Jane's on 2 December at the trade show that Aero Vodochody is also in talks with other Latin American nations, but he declined to elaborate. A customer could use the L-39NG for a second level of air force training. The Aero Vodochody official said the L-39NG could also be used with guns, rockets, and bombs as Colombia is using the aircraft against narcotics traffickers.
