Production of the all metal, high-wing commuter, cargo or utility twin-turboprop, which first flew the same year as man walked on the Moon, is increasing, thanks mainly to a new GE engine which has given the rugged veteran fresh appeal. A further iteration – with uprated powerplants and other airframe, wing and cabin improvements – is in development and due to fly by the end of the year. That version, the L-410NG, is likely extend the life of the programme well into its second half-century.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/IN-FOCUS-Czech-Republics-Aircraft-Industries-progressing-with-NG-version-of-L-410-399662/
