L-39 Flights in the US

There are a limited number of places in the US where you can fly an L-39 jet trainer. Blame this on the FAA. The L-39 has been flying safely for years, yet US aviation authorities classify the jet as "experimental". Rules prohibit selling flights in experimental aircraft. Some exceptions have been made. In Las Vegas, you can book a training flight in the L-39 if you are a licensed pilot or enrolled in a flight school. In Ft Lauderdale, instructional flights are available to non-pilots interested in going on to purchase an L-39. For more information, you can contact Incredible Adventures at 800-644-7382.
