History :

After successful production of the Z-26 aircraft family, the Czechoslovak aircraft manufacturer Moravan n.p. Otrokovice, began design of a new series of training aircraft, known as the Z-40 family. Unlike the previous tandem-seat aircraft the Z-40 family featured a side by side cockpit. It was available in two basic variants, a two seat trainer, the Zlín Z-42, and a four seat aircraft, the Zlin Z-43 capable of being used both as a trainer and a tourer. The resulting design is a single-engined low-wing monoplane of all metal construction and a fixed nosewheel undercarriage. The Z 43 shares 80% of its structure with the Z 42, but is fitted with a revised fuselage accommodating a four seater cabin and a more powerful engine. The Z-43's have wings with a little bit greater span. The Z-43 first flew on 10 December 1968, with production starting in 1972. Production of this type ended in 1977 after 80 aircraft were built.
