Take a Joyride with the Breitling Jet Team Aircraft, the L-39 Albatros
The L-39 is a fantastic aircraft for a joyride. It is rather priceworthy to operate and the maneuverability guerantees a fantastic flight experience. The L-39 was mainly used as a military trainer aircraft, but also for target pulling or as a light ground attack aircraft or tactical reconnaissance plane. As the L-39C was mainly used as trainer both the instructor and the Co-pilot (you!) have a fully-equipped cockpit and a great view. The L-39 Albatros is built fot +8 / -4 G.

Fly the same jet like Jimmy Sites in Spiritual Outdoor Adventure
In the Summer 2011 we had TV host Jimmy Sites from the US as a guest in Le Castellet. His flight will be in his series “Spiritual Outdoor Adventure” in fall 2012. It was a great pleasure to have Jimmy and Amanda Sites and the rest of the Sites family in the airodrome in Le Castellet near Toulon. Jimmy liked his flight so much that he thought of buying an own L-39 for Fighter Jet Rides in the US. So if you like the Mediterranean, warm weather and the nice hills in South France, you can get a Joyride in exactly the same aircraft like Jimmy Sites flew.
A little bit of L-39 history
The Aero Vodochody L-39 “Albatros” was designed in the former Czechoslovakia (CSSR) to meet the Est Block’s needs of a cost-effective and very maneuverable training aircraft. Read more about the Aero L-39 Albatros or book your L-39 Albatros flight right now by using the form below.
