The M-346 advanced jet trainer has resumed test flight operations after it was grounded by Alenia Aermacchi of Italy following an accident of the company-owned, pre-series aircraft on May 11, 2013.

,,The technical investigation allowed Alenia Aermacchi to successfully identify the accident’s causes”, writes the company in a press release. ,,The process has been shared with air force customers, and the required aircraft modifications have been approved by the relevant authority, the Italian Direzione Armamenti Aeronautici.”
