I feel the need...the need for speed
If you are of a certain age or love aviation then you will not need us to explain where the title line comes from. Ever dreamt of actually living your Top Gun dreams, well it’s probably more achievable than you might imagine. There are many ex-military fast jet aircraft on the market nowadays but none perhaps fit the bill better than the L-39 Albatross and at $200,000–$350,000, this price puts them in range of moderately wealthy pilots looking for a fast, agile personal jet
The L-39 Albatros was designed to be a cost-effective jet-powered trainer aircraft. To date, more than 2,800 L-39s have served with over 30 air forces around the world and it is recognised as the most widely used jet trainer in the world. In addition to performing basic and advanced pilot training, it has also flown combat missions in a light-attack role. No other aircraft will give you the feeling of operating a high-performance aircraft with the relatively safe handling characteristics of the straight winged L-39.
With a crew of 2, it has a maximum speed of over 400kts, a range of 600nm (internal fuel only) and a ceiling of 36,000ft. Imagine jetting off for a business meeting in one of these or taking your partner away for a long weekend; alternatively, just impress your friends with your knowledge of phrases from Top Gun – you even get to choose your own callsign for free!
At Moon Jet Group we are delighted to offer this stunning 1975 L-39. This L-39 has been totally restored at great expense to the current aircraft owners and is available immediately. For more details, please click HERE or contact Moon Jet Group directly.
