OK-LLR, No. 133, civic club owner, Sazená airfield, Czech Republic, 2015
Bright red color of this Trenér is work of Igor Rumanovský, who made the paintwork in May 2005 at the Nitra airfield. The aircraft
was in possession of Aero Club Banská Bystrica and based at the nearby airfield Sliač. For some time, the OM-LLR, as it was
matriculated in Slovakia, served at the Očová airfield, and then was sold to Czech Republic in 2011. The new owner was and still
is the civic club Podřipská historická letka (translates as Historic flight of the Říp mountain foothills). At the present, the aircraft
is non-airworthy and stored due to the ground accident damage in 2019. Repair is planned as the airframe still has a lot of flight
hours to the end of its life cycle.
OK-IFJ, No. 750, Zbraslavice Aero Club, Czech Republic 2020
No. 750 Trenér was manufactured in 1954 as Z-126 and rebuilt to the Z-226MS standard during its second main overhaul. At the
time the aircraft also got the present colors, which are the design of Jiří Hodan, pilot and renowned modeler. The aircraft experienced engine malfunction during the tow on July 1, 2012. Pilot, after hearing the massive bang from the engine, experienced loss
of power and vibrations. After glider release, he stopped the engine and conducted emergency landing on the airfield successfully.
OK-KNN, No. 41-09, Vysoké Mýto Aero Club, Czech Republic, 2013
The towing workhorse of the Vysoké Mýto Aero Club was produced as Z-126 in 1956 and first served with Slaný Aero Club. It was
handed over to Točná Aero Club in 1967 and two years later to Dvůr Králové Aero Club. Starting from 1976 it serves with Vysoké
Mýto Aero Club until today. During third overhaul, finished in June 1981, the aircraft was rebuilt to the Z-226M standard and
later to Z-226MS. On November 25, 2013, the engine malfunction forced pilot to conduct emergency landing on the field near to
Kroměříž city. The aircraft was undamaged, but during the engine change another overhaul was made. Due to the minor damage
to the rudder the fabric cover was changed in 2014 and it was left white without the blue stripes as on the rest of the aircraft. It
flies with the white rudder until today.
