A dream for many GA pilots: flying an L-39

Todd over at My Flight Blog recently had an incredible opportunity. He was able to go flying with Gauntlet Warbirds in an Aero L-39 Albatros, the Czech trainer that has become somewhat of a regular on the airshow circuit. In his 45 minutes in the air, they burned over 100 gallons of Jet A and I don't think I need to even say that it was worth every penny.

You can read his full post about the flight here. I hate roller coasters, but still... color me jealous!


  1. Thanks for sharing this experience with your readers. It was an amazing experience.

  2. No problem... it's awesome AND it's good aviation content while I'm out on the road! ;-)

  3. I have always wanted to fly an L-39, and even looked into buying one - that is until my wife got wind of it!

    Great video - enjoyed it a lot!

    Wonder what Elrey B. Jeppesen would think of all this technology today?
