L-39 Albatros in Czech Republik
A rapid flight at a surprisingly reasonable cost is what we can offer fighter jet fans in the Czech Republic. The Czech Aero L-39 Albatros is ready for boarding in Brno (used to be from Plzen back in the days). The jet used to be the standard training aircraft of every Eastern Bloc Air Force – and up until today serves numerous armies. Because of its agile and versatile flight characteristics, the L-39 Albatros is still used there as a training jet as well as a light ground attack aircraft.
The relatively inexpensive maintenance of the L-39 Albatros fighter makes it a quite cost-effective model to fly in comparison with other aircraft. Every MiGFlug customer experiences a flight with the L-39 Albatros as a thrilling and affordable experience and Air Force pilots anyway swear by it.
Real Dog Fight Maneuvers – Control an L-39 Albatros Yourself!
What is nice to watch at airshows can indeed be a lifesaver during combat: Military pilots from all Air Forces train maneuvers like loops, rolls, Immelmann-turns, split-s, inverted flight, turns and Cuban eights to be familiar with the capabilities of the aircraft in every situation. MiGFlug clients can experience aerobatics directly from the cockpit – because of the extreme G-forces, the limits lie with the passenger and not with the jet.
If you like to take matters into your own hands, you are at the right place with MiGFlug. After adequate training on the ground and demonstration in the air, you will be in control of the L-39 Albatros and will fly the aerobatic maneuvers yourself – at a breathtaking speed!
The Day of Your Life – on a Red Army Airbase!
Until the end of the Cold War, the huge airbase in the Czech Republic was home to multiple MiG-21 Squadrons. At times more than seventy-five MiG-21 supersonic fighter jets were stationed there. This aerodrome of the Red Army is now used for flights with the L-39 Albatros jet aircraft. For today’s circumstances, the airbase is quite oversized and thus ideal for an aviation excursion. You can have a look at the old barracks or watch L-39-jets currently under restoration.
Extreme Low Passes – at 750 km/h
What turns a good pilot into an excellent pilot? His experience and the number of flying hours. Your pilot with MiGFlug in the Czech Republic is profusely equipped with both. As a former Air Force pilot and test pilot of Aero Vodochody – the manufacturer of the L-29 Delfin, L-39 Albatros, and L-159 Super Alca, flying at raging speeds has become a daily occurrence. An experience well-reflected in the pilot’s trustworthy and calm disposition – on the ground as well as in the air. You wouldn’t want to entrust yourself to anybody else while performing the so-called “low pass”. This stunningly low flight – only a few meters above ground – is mastered only by a few experienced pilots. Your L-39 pilot is one of them.
A flight with MiGFlug in the Czech Republic can be ideally combined with a few relaxing days in Bohemia. The historic center of the city of Pilsen, with the St. Bartholomew cathedral and the many cozy restaurants with traditional cuisine, welcome you. After sundown, it’s not time to go home yet: The city transforms itself and Czechs go out and ensure a vibrant nightlife. A further convenience: Due to the advantageous exchange rate for the Czech Koruna you’ll have a great time in Pilsen and Prague without spending too much money.
The Day of Your L-39 Albatros Flight in Czech Republic
When you arrive at the airport you’ll meet your pilot. After the reception, you will go to a briefing room where you have time to discuss the aircraft and the flight program with your pilot. You will then define your flight program together. Whether you’d like to do a calm tour or an action-loaded Air Force program, the pilot will oblige your wishes as much as possible. You’ll also receive a comprehensive explanation of all safety systems on board and you’ll be provided with a flight suit and a helmet for the day. Now, you are ready to go on to the ramp, where technicians have already prepared the aircraft. As soon as you’ve taken a seat in the cockpit, the ground crew will adjust the restraints. The pilot is going to explain the important instruments to you once more. After checking if the intercom is working and receiving takeoff clearance, you are ready to go! Once in the air, you’ll have the chance to control the aircraft yourself and fly maneuvers like rolls or loops. The following maneuvers are part of the flight program:
- Steep Ascent
- Extreme low passes (a few meters above ground)
After Landing you can take a souvenir photo with the pilot and the aircraft and you will receive a certificate that records your flight achievement. And you can refresh yourself with a drink or a toast to your fantastic adventure.
