Long shot, but. . . . .

anyone got any experience of flying a L39 ? looking for feedback on running costs, training requirements (min number of hours required to gain rating), companies who can service in the UK etc.

Cheers

Rob

Go to www.pprune.com and ask there.

One of the main things is numbers of hours on type for the insurance. I'm sure you can fly on a PPL with additions. I'll ask one of our tech guys and see if he knows.

I'd love to fly one so let me know when you buy and we'll do a swap!!!

Hey Paul, think I've got a way to go yet to get the hours. Yet, in the good ol US of A, you only need 100 hours P1. But, I thin they've changed from LOA's to something else. Not sure if you need more hours now etc.

Yes, L39's are awesome, maybe one day mate. . . :thumbsup:

I'll take a gander at the site, thanks for the heads up.

I asked a pal of mine yesterday, who I would have bet diamonds, he would have known all your answers.
but unfortunately, this was the response:
Rather sadly, the only person I knew who was familiar with the L39 Delfin was killed in one..........

cheers, d

Alas, that's always the danger of flying.

The Delfin is a L29, a lot older aircraft, twin seat Soviet jet trainer.

We've had no aircraft induced fatalities in our aircraft..............they are a shade slower than a L39 though!

Rob, check this website out - www.l39.com

I think the FAQ would answer your questions!

Great site, think I've got a why to go to get up to 1000 hours though !:shocked:

I'm sure in the UK the CAA/JAA (whatever it's called now) is only 100 hours P1? Maybe I'm wrong, wouldn't be the first time :laugh:

Thanks for the info. . . .
