Zlin Z-50 LS
The ZLIN Z50 is a Czech-designed and built high-performance aerobatic aeroplane. It first saw the light of day in early 1976 and for those days was a remarkably advanced piece of engineering. All-aluminium with a single span Titanium spring for landing gear, the design was light and extremely strong. Massively thick wingroots, enormous ailerons with servo-assist and an enormous fin and rudder meant an aircraft capable of withstanding huge forces when subjected to violent manouevres. The only concession to tradition is the fabric covered elevator.
Powered by Lycoming’s brilliant AEIO-540-L185D series engine, developing 300hp, driving a three-blade Hoffmann constant-speed prop, the little Zlin is fast and extremely agile yet is capable of extraordinary things at very slow speeds.
In its hay-days, the ZlinZ50 took out 3 World championships and 4 European championships together with scores of club-level competitions. It truly ruled the skies until the advent of a new generation of super-aerobatic aircraft arrived in the shape of the Sukhoi 26 and the Extra 300.
Today, the ZlinZ50LS is still flown by the world’s finest aerobatic pilots and club pilots alike. One such pilot, 2013 Spanish National Champion Ernest “Tuckie” Artigas has helped us with the development of the Zlin through testing and invaluable advice and comment. We will continue to work together to improve this product throughout its lifecycle. That includes when we bring this exciting product to Microsoft Flight Simulator. So, strap on a Zlin Z50 in the certain knowledge that it will continue to be an exciting ride well into the future!
