The Aero L-39 Albatros is used as an agile jet trainer, tactical reconnaissance aircraft and light ground support fighter. The jet is mostly used to train future pilots of larger aircraft such as the MiG-29 Fulcrum. The #L39Albatros is however still used in many airforces as an attack aircraft for air to ground support missions or as a #tactical #reconnaissance aircraft. Since its commissioning in 1971, over 2’800 aircraft have been built in various versions. The L-39 Albatros is a modern #jettrainer of the same generation as the #F14 #Tomcat or the #MiG23 #Flogger and was launched only a short time before the American F-15 Eagle or the Russian MiG-29 Fulcrum.
