Leonardo Showcases 1st Series Production M-345

Italian defence conglomerate is showcasing the 1st pre-series production M-345 jet trainer aircraft at the ongoing Paris Air Show. The M-345 is being offered to potential customers by Leonardo as a high-performance turbofan jet trainer which has life cycle costs that are comparable with heavy turboprop trainer aircraft.

The M-345 can attain a maximum level speed of 380 KTAS at sea level and 425 KTAS at 20,000 feet. The aircraft is able to attain a rate of climb of 5,200 ft/min at sea level. The M-345’s structure will have an operating life of up to 15,000 hours.

The M-345 has attracted interest from a number of air forces. The M-345 offers state-of-the-art avionics, flight simulators and other ground-based teaching aids, in addition to an integrated simulation system on board the aircraft, all of which are seamlessly integrated into a single LVC (Live, Virtual, Constructive) training environment. The M-346’s onboard Embedded Tactical Training Simulation (ETTS) system, is based on that offered in the well-proven M-346 aircraft.
