During the four decades of the last century, the elegant Aero L-29 was the most widely used jet trainer of the Eastern Bloc air forces (except Poland) and also of a number of the Third World states. In addition to its primary pilot training role the aeroplane was used for bombing and rocket attack training and it was also modified for reconnaissance duties. With more than 3,600 Delfins completed, Czechoslovakia became one of the biggest jet trainer aircraft producers at the time, testifying to the type's timeless design.
