L-39 Jet Fighter

The two-seater L-39 Albatros was designed in the late 1960’s for primary and advanced training including firing practice. There is an estimated 2800 L-39 Albatros produced, having served in over 30 air forces around the world, being the most widely produced and safest jet trainer in the world.

It is currently used by the Breitling Jet Team – the largest display team in Europe – and has featured in numerous movies including James Bond: Tomorrow Never Dies.

This aircraft is a dream to fly, with subsonic aerobatic maneuvers completed with grace and effortless efficiency. With the combination of a maximum speed of 872km/h and the panoramic visibility in all conditions, you’ll feel as fast and powerful as the aircraft itself.

The L-39 is incredibly agile and you’ll be spiraling through the skies with G-forces of up to 6.5. This aircraft is more than capable of all the basic positive-G jet maneuvers: aileron rolls, barrel rolls, loops, Cuban-8s, Immelmanns and Cloverleafs.

Flying an L-39 is the real deal. Being airborne in an L-39 allows you to become a modern-day fighter pilot for a day.

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT!

“Dream come true! Went out in the Mustang with super-pilot Cam and had the time of my life! Heaps of fantastic aeros and awesome views of Brisbane and Moreton Bay. It was an awesome experience being inverted in a barrel roll and a loop. This is truly a bucket list experience that I have just put a massive tick beside! Thanks so much to Brad, Cam and Bec at Fighter Pilot adventure flights!”

- Graham Gill

“What an awesome experience in the back seat of Steadfast. Super helpful and friendly team and the flying experience was entirely out of this world. How many people can say they have flown in a formation with and tail chased a Mustang while flying in a World Record holding Yakovlev. Simply beyond words! Real bucket list stuff!”

- Daniel Drake

“Really great flight in the Yak 52 – all of the staff were really friendly and helpful. I recommend this to anybody looking for some great fun.”

- Jack Van Veldhuizen

“What a blast – another adventure off my bucket list. My father was a WWII Spitfire fighter pilot and was awarded a DFC & Legion of Honour for his role in D Day. He has now passed and I have always wanted to experience a flight in a WWII fighter. My first wish was a Spitfire and if not available a P-51 Mustang. Finding a two-seater fighter is not easy but Fighter Pilot solved the problem. Thanks to Cameron and his P-51D I was able to experience the thrills, power and adrenalin of a flight in a Mustang. This was the ultimate flight and a dream come true. Thanks to Rebecca, Cameron & Fighter Pilot team for the experience. The DVD was a bonus to maintain the memory.”

- John Cowpe

“The Fighter Pilot experience really is unreal! I never thought I’d get the chance to barrel roll through the sky in a L-39 and feel those G’s. I would recommend this to anyone, especially if you have a Top-Gun fan in your life! It’s the perfect gift that will change their life. Thank you so much Fighter Pilot – I will certainly be back for more!”
