November will see the Polish Air Force take delivery of the first of eight M-346 Master lead-in fighter trainer aircraft from Leonardo-Finmeccanica, marking what is set to be one of the early landmarks in a run of new military flight training investment within Central and Eastern Europe. Electromagnetic testing has taken place within an anechoic chamber and a phase of experimental and certification flights is beginning.
