History of the aircraft

 

The Aero L-29 Delfin was the first jet trainer aircraft designed and built in Czechoslovakia. The original prototype had already taken off in 1959 but had been powered by a British engine. The aircraft served in weapons training roles, thus equipped with hardpoints to carry gun pods, bombs or missiles. The total number of manufactured aircrafts was 3600, still an unbeaten record in the jet trainer category. In most countries, the L-29 Delfin was replaced by its successor, the Aero L-39 Albatros.

Presently the L-29 serves in only a few military forces. They utilize it as a fighter aircraft during ground attack missions and also to attack low-flying targets.

Many L-29s had already become the personal property of avid collectors by the early 1990s. Today several privately-owned Delfins are flying around. They often appear on air shows, always waking up great interest among the spectators.

Joe:

I was actually visiting Vienna, but since Brno is a short train ride away, I bought a railjet tickets and booked a 30min flight. Very easy to book and coordinate. Kamila stayed in contact during the booking process and provided updates as the flight date approached. Not sure how to explain, but it was a thrilling ride, with inverted flight, Vertical Stalls, barrel rolls, loops, Immelmann turns, etc. Loved every minute of the flight. The ground staff is great as well. The whole event was perfect.

Tom:

From the morning, I was excited. We arrived at the airport and adrenalin increased. The first Jet Fighter flew in front of us and we saw how Delfin L-29 makes twists (turns, loopings and rollings) at 300 kilometers per hour! Believe me, it will amaze you! Before the flight, you will learn how to use a catapult and it will not let you calm :)

Here it comes.. I climbed into the cockpit, strapped me in, put on a helmet, repeated instructions and suddenly we are taking off. The start can not be compared with starting the Ferrari or Caterham, it is about 20 times stronger.

I would like to describe you the beauty from the aircraft and the feelings in turns and loopings, but it is impossible. You have to try it!

For me it was the perfect experience of a lifetime. For a moment you will feel like a pilot from Top Gun. I recommend to buy a DVD from GO PRO which is fixed in the cockpit.
