Top 5 Reasons for this Flight

If you’re located around Paderborn or are visiting Cologne, Dusseldorf, Duisburg, Essen or Bielefeld, this is the jet for you! Due to higher fuel- and maintenance cost, flights in Germany are more expensive than elsewhere, but there’s no travel time required if you’re in the region.

Due to the topology, the pilot is able to do some thrilling low-level flights.

The L-39 is capable to perform also advanced aerobatics maneuvres. Loops, rolls, immelman – you name it.

The plane was in use in the NVA / Luftstreitkräfte and is therefore absolutely authentic.

Despite being able on short notice, we recommend booking a flight early to ensure your flight date is available.

The recommended flight date range is from March til October as days are longer and weather is generally better than in winter.

We recommend a 20-minutes flight. If you think you can handle it, you can still just go for a second flight!

Photos and videos can be recorded free of charge by yourself or your friends before and after the flight. In-flight videos can be added to your flight for a fee. When buying your flight, just select it from the checkout page.
