As part of their training day pilots demonstrated loops, Split-S, dives, rolls and Immelmann turns. The L-39 Formation Team of Russia consists of honoured pilots of the Vyazamskiy Aviacenter, an experienced flight school which gives pilot training for MiG-15, MiG17, L-29 and L-39 aircrafts. Each pilot has flown more than 2,500 hours and they are the only pilots allowed in Russia to fly the the L-39 jets. The Albatros L-39 jet is a high-performance jet trainer aircraft, which was first developed in Czechoslovakia in the 1960s. It allows extreme manoeuvres and can reach a maximum speed up to 750 km/h at a height of 5,000 metres (16,400 ft). The light attack jet was widely used by the former Soviet Army and between 1974 and 1989 the Soviet Union received almost 3,000 L-39 jets. The jet is now used by the air forces of 16 countries from all over the world.
