On 8 April 1957 Let flew the prototype of a twin-engined four/five-seat business aircraft designed by Ladislav Smrcek. Designated Let L-200 Morava, the machine was a cantilever low-wing monoplane with permanently-attached wingtip fuel tanks and had a tail unit incorporating twin endplate fins and rudders. Landing gear was of retractable tricycle type, and power for the prototype and L-200 series aircraft was provided by two 119kW Walter Minor 6-III inline engines. The original production model was superseded first by the generally similar L-200A, with more powerful Walter M 337 engines and, subsequently, by the final production version, the L-200D, which was introduced in mid-1962. This differed by in-corporating improved systems, strengthened landing gear, and three-bladed constant-speed propellers. When production ended in 1968 more than 1,000 had been built, many being supplied to Aeroflot for this airline's operations in the Moscow, North and Ukrainian Directorate areas. The type was also built under licence in Yugoslavia.

Olaf, it was no real licence manufacturing. At LIBIS factory a Ljubliana, they just put together 5 machines from spare parts.

OOOPS, my mistake. The L-29 and L-39 were manufactured by Aero, not LET and they are listed under Aero. I don't see the BLANIK listed anywhere, though. I have lots of time in BLANIK gliders; I like them a lot.

I see no mention of the L-29 and L-39 jet trainers. There are many L-39s flying in the USA now.

I see no mention of BLANIK gliders. They were manufactured by LET were they not? The BLANIK is probably the best known Czech aircraft in the USA.
