         The successor of the flourishing L-29 became standard jet training plane in Czechoslovakia, USSR, GDR and many other countries. The first prototype took off on 4.11. 1968 as a standard training version L-39C.
        The plane has an all-metal construction with a stressed skin. The fuselage is made up of two basic parts and is semi-monocoque. Crew pressure cabin, radio control and electronics are located in a front part. Fuel tank and engine bed ar placed behind the cabin.Tail with tail units are easily removable, which enables quick access to engine. Due to the turbo blower engine the L39 planes have much more power than the Dolphine one, which allows using L-39 as a light battleplane.
         Version L-39ZO had 4 frogs and stationary mounted GŠ-23 23mm cannon. Version L-39MS (commercial name L59) had 4 frogs and GŠ-23 cannon again, but with a more powerful engine DV-2 and modern avionics coming out of a domestic produce (including software) standard on a beginning of a new advanced types from Aero Vodochody.
         L-39ZO was developed as a part of a new complex trainee programme, including flight simulator TL-39, ejection simulator NKTL-39, ground control device KL-39 and drogue KT-4.
