The milestone was reached by an MB-339CM during a test flight in preparation for delivery to the Royal Malaysian Air Force. The Asian country contracted for the jet trainer in late 2006. Completion of the deliveries to Malaysia will make the MB family cross the symbolic 1,000 aircraft threshold.

Alenia Aermacchi is the world’s oldest builder of aircraft in continuous existence. The company was incorporated in Varese on 1st May 1913 as Nieuport-Macchi and still echoes the original name carried by the fighters of Italy’s leading fighter aces, by record-breaking racing seaplanes and by the MB.339 of the Italian Air Force “Frecce Tricolori” acrobatic team.
