Sukhoi performed the first flight of its Su-38L agricultural aircraft late last month. Two flights took place on 27 July from Sukhoi's flight test centre at Zhukhovsky, and the aircraft had completed eight more sorties by 9 August. The aircraft is based on the Su-29 aerobatic aircraft and is powered by a LOM Praha M337 six-cylinder in-line piston engine. It debuted at last week's Moscow air show.
