The most sought-after aircraft on the Jet Warbird Market – far more modern in design than all of the others. The L-39 is a unique blend of Soviet-style simplicity and Czechoslovakian-style Western technology.

An amazingly easy aircraft to fly – with excellent back-up systems. This is the current Russian Trainer. It was also produced as a close air support aircraft.
