Aero produced over 2900 L-39s in the Czech Republic (formerly in Czechoslovakia), and later produced about 80 L-59 Super Albatross trainers from 1986. Currently, Aero produces sub-assemblies for significant aircraft programs, such as the Sikorsky Blackhawk, Saab Grippon, Alenia C-27J and various aircraft from Airbus, Embraer and Boeing. The Aero Experience continues our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013 with this extensive photo essay featuring the Aero L-39s flown by the Black Diamond Jet Team (led by friend of The Aero Experience Ltc. Jerry "Jive" Kerby, USAF Ret.) and the individually-owned aircraft that participated in airshows throughout the week.
