Zlin Z-42 / Z-142 / Z-242
A two seat trainer and touring aerobatic aircraft, the Zlin 42 was developed in the late sixties and followed by the Z-142 with a slightly modified cockpit canopy and a more powerful engine. The Z 142 two-seat basic and advanced civil/military trainer was first flown in December 1978.
The Z 242 is a variant of the Z142 with a U.S. Textron Lycoming engine in place of the L0M Prague type.
