Uzbekistan Airways to buy LET L-410

On June 15, 2023, it was signed an agreement on the acquisition of four LET L-410 planes.

The LET L-410 aircraft is designed to carry up to 19 passengers with a landing on almost any type of runway with a length of 510 meters or more.

Uzbekistan Airways aircraft fleet will soon be replenished with a new type of aircrafts. In order to increase the number of flights on domestic routes for the transportation of small groups of passengers, as well as to develop domestic tourism in the Republic, on June 15, 2023, it was signed an agreement at the head office of Uzbekistan Airways for the purchase of turboprop aircraft LET L-410 of the Czech concern LET Aircraft Industries.

Aircraft of the LET L-410 type are designed to carry up to 19 passengers and will be able to provide flights with a range of up to 1,500 kilometres. It is planned that these aircraft will be used on ultra-short runways and will expand the route network within the Republic to such cities as Zarafshan and Shakhrisabz. In the near future, it is planned to restore regular air connection between the cities of Tashkent and Andijan, which will also become possible due to the technical characteristics of the LET L-410 aircraft and the features of the runway of Andijan International Airport.

Today, aircraft of the LET L-410 type are widely used around the world. The national air carrier of the Republic of Uzbekistan plans to purchase up to 4 aircraft of this type, which in the future will provide flights to destinations previously inaccessible to Uzbeks and guests of the capital. In addition, it is planned to organize the initial training of civil aviation pilots on the basis of the Uzbekistan Airways Training Center, during which aircraft of the LET L-410 type will be involved at one of the stages.

At least 16 dead after L410 crashes in Russia.

    A Let L-410 Turbolet twin-engine short-range transport aircraft has crashed shortly after taking off in the Russian region of Tatarstan early on Sunday, officials have confirmed.

The small aircraft was carrying a group of some 20 parachutists and two crew members at the time of the accident, which is currently being investigated. According to local media, the crew reported their left engine had failed whilst they were at a height of around 70 metres. They reportedly tried to make an emergency landing near the city of Menzelinsk, as they tried to avoid an inhabited area. Upon the emergency landing, the aircraft's wing hit another vehicle and that caused the plane to turn over and hit a wall.  

The Let L-410 was owned by an aeroclub in the city of Menzelinsk which has links with the state-run Cosmonaut Training Centre which is also in the area, According to reports the centre has suspended its ties with the aeroclub pending an investigation into the crash. The aeroclub has declined to comment while investigations take place.
