L 13 AC Blanik

The all-metal two-seater, type-certified in the standard aerobatic category, primarily intended for dual aerobatic training while also used for elementary glider training. It has the same cockpit as the L23 Super Blanik with one piece canopy, the tail of an L13, and shortened L23 wings. The intended users of the L13 AC Blaník are clubs, commercial, and military schools where instructors and other pilots are trained in mastering basic aerobatic maneuvers. The aim of L13AC Blanik is to promote instruction in aerobatics, including recoveries from unusual glider attitudes. The availability of this kind of glider, similar to the original L 13 Blanik, the most widely used trainer in the world, makes it possible for instructors to refresh their aerobatic skills, and to pass the confidence gained on to their students.

Two-seat, all-metal structure high wing sailplane with fabric covered control surfaces. New series started in 2018, produced with implemented modifications from L 23 NG.
L 23 SUPER-BLANÍK 2018 Edition is designed for flight training including basic aerobatics. Thanks to its easy maneuverability is widely used in pilot schools, gliding and sport clubs worldwide.2018 Edition has several improvements including material changes. Single piece canopy makes space for great views together with tilting roof so the back seat is easily accessible. Added dashboard handles also make boarding much easier. Interior is somewhat roomier. Newly designed, adjustable seats with headrest have improved ergonomics. Pilots will value the higher comfort especially when spending longer hours airborne. Manipulation with the fuselage has been simplified by fixed handle placed in the rear. Standard wingtips or salmons can be replaced by new winglets to improve gliding ratio. Dashboard is equipped with new avionics by Winter and modern radio stations KRT2 or Trig. Towing is possible by plane or by winch (side and bottom tow release). Further equipment is optional according to the customer ´s preferences. Thanks to the durable materials L 23 can be stored outside, has easy maintenance and repairs while keeping low operating costs.

L 33 Solo

L-33 Solo is a single-seat all-metal glider with T-type tail surfaces. The construction of the first three prototypes began in 1991, the series production in Let Kunovice started in 1993 and to date has been produced about 100 pieces. The L-33 was developed as the single-seat "natural step" for early solo students to fly after dual training on the two-seat LET L-23 Super BlaníkThe semi-monocoque design is made from flush riveted aluminum sheet. The rudder is covered with doped aircraft fabric. Its 14.12 m (46.3 ft) span, semi-tapered wing employs a Wortmann FX-60-17A11-182 airfoil at the wing root, transitioning to an FX-60-126 at the wing tip. The wing has an area of 11 m2 (120 sq ft) and mounts top surface air brakes.

L 13 SE Vivat - Rotax 912

Prototype with built-in Rotax 912 ULS engine and avionic systém Garmin G3X touch. The wings, fuselage and tail surfaces of the L-13 are mated to a cockpit featuring side-by-side seats and a conventional firewall forward engine installation. Remotorization of the L-13 SE Vivat replaces the original Walter Mikron unit with the modern Rotax 912 ULS engine. The primary goal is not to only achieve a higher speed, but to shorten the take-off time and improve the climb performance. To fly VIVAT with built-in Rotax engine means to have one of the most effective platforms to acquire and to maintain PPL or LAPL license, go for further training, for radio communication and navigation training all together while keeping low operating costs. Currently in certification process under EASA to acquire STC.
