What about IAR 93? You don't have any information?
|Hristo, e-mail, 17.04.2011 13:39|
Kind of like it - looks light and sporty. Is it by any chnace a "cousin" with the G4 and especially with the chinese JL-8 (this one looks like it, only fat due to the L-39 engine)?

This plane is one of the best in the market.It s too bad that it wasn t build in enough quantities.Wake up guys!Romania doesn t have enough funds too make it better!But in my opinion it can be a rival for many other planes in it s class!So...don t jump with any conclusions until you can fly it!

Great design & better avionics but does it has potential when come to market??
|TKD, 03.12.2008 16:01|
The IAR-99 and the upgraded version IAR-99 SOIM are great aircrafts for pilots, rookie or veteran but it is very poor in maintenance, a lot of problems and overall is way poorer than the L-39 wich in my oppinion is the best school and maintenance aircraft.

IAR 99 is much better than L-39.It is inferior to L-159 ,British Hawk or MB 339,MIT-AT or whaterver...IAR 109 is maching the planes mentioned above(but IAR 109 was produced only in 1 piece).
|Gon4z, e-mail, 04.03.2008 19:50|
Sry mate this aircraft is no where close to being a good attack or close support let alone the best this is incomparable to the Czech L-39 & L-159 or Italian M.B.339 or the British Hawks.... they are just much better than this aircraft and proven this aircraft is very similar to the Yugoslav G-4 but its still very inferior to the Yugoslav variant.
|Andy, 26.06.2007 21:44|
I think that this aircraft is underestimated...it is currently used only in training...but in could also be verry successful asa an attacker...because it is very lith and can make manuvers like no other aircraft...i saw it with my eyes...i this could be a good attacker, if not the best.
Do you have any comments?
