Last review

Tom, Czech Republic :

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 Albatros L-39 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.

History of the aircraft

The Aero L-39 Albatros is a two-seat subsonic jet aircraft developed by Aero Vodochody. Manufactured in the 1960s it became the standard jet trainer aircraft of the Warsaw Pact. The chief engineer was Ing. Jan Vlček. Along with the jet trainer aircraft, a ground-based flight training complex with a flight simulator was created.

The Aero L-39 Albatros is a versatile aircraft intended for basic and fighter pilot training. It can be utilized as combat aircraft or take action against aerial targets. Thanks to its perfect flight specifications and easy handling, it’s also suitable for aerobatics. It has a traditional steering system without hydraulic power and it’s equipped with ejection seats.

Even though these aircraft are being gradually replaced by more modern ones, many of them are still performing their pilot training function and some are the personal property of pilots all over the world. Within the Czech Republic the Aero L-39 Albatros fighters are operated by the training squadron in Čáslav and the Flight Training Center in Pardubice.
