Aero Vodochody L-39

The Czech-made L-39 Albatros is known for its flying ability, reliability and the great visibility from both cockpits. The L-39 was built as the successor to the aircraft company’s earlier trainer, the L-29 Delfin. Design work began in 1966, and the first prototype made its initial flight on 4 November 1968. The aircraft was to serve as the primary jet trainer for the Warsaw Pact. The incredible L-39 is still used by more than 30 Air Forces around the world.

Who can do this?

The final decision over who can fly and train in the L-39 is made by one of our FAAcertified L-39 instructors, in accordance with FAA regulations. As a general rule, you must have a pilot’s license, verifiable flying experience, be in reasonably good health, meet basic height, weight and TSA restrictions, and sign a Release of Liability. Contact Incredible Adventures for more info.

How much does it cost?

The cost depends on the training selected and your prior flight experience, but typically ranges from $3500 to $20,000 US.

Can I bring someone with me to the airport to watch me train and fly?

Most likely, yes. For safety and security reasons, guests must be approved in advance and should be aware they may not be granted access to all areas of our training facility.

Is this dangerous?

Absolutely! (So is crossing the street and driving to the airport.) You will be required to sign a release of liability. We use the best planes and the best pilots and your safety is our biggest concern, but you must assume all risks. The L-39 is considered an “experimental aircraft” by the FAA.
