Let-40-1

 

First flying in 1954 the Omnipol L-40 Meta-Sokol originated from Czechoslovakia. The initial version was a three-seater with either a 105 hp Walter Minor 4-III or 115/140 hp M 332 engine.
 
The four-seater is powered by a 110hp Let M-332 four-cylinder inline engine. Its retractable undercarriage is a reverse tricycle, though the technique is just the same as a normal taildragger.
 

Late production aircraft had provision for wingtip auxiliary fuel tanks.
