In Russia, catapults on combat training aircraft are out of order. According to the speaker of the command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuriy Ignat, because you have to jump overboard the old fashioned way, by parachute. “They complain in their Telegram channels that due to the refusal of the Czech Republic to service and provide components for fighters, the Russians cannot repair the ejection seats on the L-39 combat training aircraft and fully train future pilots,” said Ignat . According to him, given that there are very few Yak-130 training aircraft, and there are no spare parts for the L-39, they have several solutions: either expel cadets, or send them on indefinite leave, or put them without a working seat in this training aircraft and give them parachutes. "And, as they say, the old fashioned way, if something, jump overboard", – Ignat added.
