Alca for the first time in Malta
06 February 2014
We have been officially informed of a new participant to the Malta International Airshow 2014. The Czech Air Force has officially confirmed participation with an L-159 advanced, multi-role combat aircraft in the flying display programme and a CASA 295 to support the display. This will be the third time the Czech Republic will feature at Malta's airshow after taking part in the 1997 and 1998 editions
The L-159 ALCA is the single seat version of the L-159 family capable of air-to-air, air-to-ground and reconnaissance missions. The Czech Air Force operates 19 such aircraft and the jet is built in the Czech Republic by Aero Vodochody. The L-159 has built on the success achieved by its predecessor, the L-59.
The Malta Aviation Society warmly welcomes the Czech Air Force to Malta and particularly the crew coming to the Malta International Airshow 2014.
