The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation needs a version of the L-410 aircraft on a float landing gear for operation in Siberia and the Arctic. This was stated by the head of the military department, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu, within the framework of the Single Day of Acceptance of Military Products.

The L-410 is a multipurpose twin-engine aircraft for regional transportation.

“I hope that by the end of this year we will reach this goal – the delivery of an L-410 aircraft on a float landing gear and skis. It is the float landing gear, and not just amendments, so that we can use these aircraft in Siberia and the Arctic regions of our country, ”the Minister of Defense noted.

Sergei Shoigu added that “this machine is extremely needed precisely for work on unsuitable airfields, for landing on water, landing on snow and ground.”

The head of the military department also said that at present, a rhythmic supply of military transport aircraft to the army is starting, and attention should be paid to the training of VTA pilots. The main vehicle for this is the L-410.

“We have a big program, and I hope we have reached a rhythmic supply of these aircraft,” the head of the military department said.
