Fly the L-39 'Albatros' Over Prague
We now offer flights in the L-39 'Albatros' high-performance
jet near Prague in the Czech Republic, the birthplace of the L-39.
Fly the L-39 right in the Czech Republic with the
test pilots of Aero Vodochody.
More powerful than any piston engine two-seater,
it is made for maximum maneuverability and flight experience.
As the L-39 is a trainer, both the instructor and the trainee
(that is, you) have a fully-equipped cockpit and a great view.
Thanks to its short and straight wings, the L-39 can perform stunning
maneuvers and push up to +8 / -4 G. It’s great value for the money
and a thrill you’ll never forget.

There’s much to do and see in the Czech Republic. The country,
famous for its extensive yellow canola fields, green meadows,
small creeks, its bohemian tradition and good (and cheap!) beer
is an ideal place to spend a short holiday. Prague and the monumental
Charles Bridge (Karly Most) and Prague’s Castle (Pražský hrad)
are a must-see on every trip to Europe. Other cities such as Pilsen,
home of the Pilsner Urquell are also highly recommended visits.
The L-39- 'Albatros'
The Aero L-39 'Albatros' was developed in Czechoslovakia
(following the L-29 'Delfin', which is also available for flights)
as a high-performance jet trainer. This aircraft can operate from
improvised airfields with minimal equipment. Considerably smaller
than combat aircraft such as the MiG-29, the L-39 is deployed
as a light attack plane against ground targets and as a tactical
reconnaissance aircraft and for basic and advanced pilot training,
and is the most widely-used jet trainer in the world.
