Fly L-39 Albatros Military Trainer

The L-39 “Albatros” is a high-performance jet trainer developed in Czechoslovakia. The L-39 “Albatros” was selected as the standard jet trainer in 1972 for the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact countries and was the successor to the L-29 Delfin jet. Its design began in 1966, and the first prototype made its first flight on 4 November 1968. However, serial production was delayed until 1974 due to problems with the design of the air intakes. More than 2800 planes of all versions were built. And it is currently in military service of more than 30 Air Forces in Europe (including Russia), Asia, Africa and America.
The L-39 is a single engine, tandem two seat, all-metal, subsonic aircraft. The aircraft's primary mission was basic and advanced training, with external armament stores that would enabled it to fulfil operational training in ground attack roles. The L-39 is a unique blend of Soviet-style simplicity and Czechoslovakian technology. This is an amazingly easy aircraft to fly with excellent back-up systems.
