M-346 resumed test flight operations

The M-346 advanced jet trainer has resumed test flight operations after it was grounded by Alenia Aermacchi following an accident of the company-owned, pre-series aircraft on 11 May 2013.

 

The technical investigation allowed Alenia Aermacchi to successfully identify the accident's causes. The process has been shared with air force customers, and the required aircraft modifications have been approved by the relevant authority, the Italian Direzione Armamenti Aeronautici (DAA).
