The Aero L-29 Delfin was a 2 seat training aircraft that could also double as a weapons trainer/light attack aircraft. It first entered service in 1961 and became the standard jet trainer for Warsaw Pact Air Forces and was the first Czech designed and built jet aircraft. It is an easy aircraft to fly and maintain and can operate from normal runways or grass fields and has an excellent safety record. It was in production from 1963 to 1974 with around 3600 being made and whilst most military operators have retired the aircraft from service, a handful of Air Forces still operate it in small numbers. There are also a number of L-29's that are privately owned including a few that take part in air races.
