RICH PERKINS & FIRECAT !!
it. For your air show, what you want, what you need is a JET!
Firecat is a sleek, modern jet, an Aero Vodochody L-39C. It is not outdated. It is not obsolete. It is a modern military aircraft with all the performance and reliability that implies. To this pedigree, add one of the wildest skinpaints anywhere, a great aerial act choreographed to music, and you’ve got a feature act for your show. Take a look at the photos again. Have you ever seen a more eye-catching paint scheme? Can’t you just picture the Firecat on your air show posters?!
In its former life behind the Iron Curtain, the Firecat was a light attack fighter and trainer called the L-39 Albatros. In its present life in the good ol’ US of A, it’s the Firecat , and it’s like no jet your audience has ever seen!
Firecat has two seats and close to 4000 pounds of thrust to move those seats along at near sonic speeds. It’s an imposing aircraft: 40 feet of engine, cockpit and streamlining and 31 feet of dagger tipped wings. It stands almost 16 feet tall. It is fast, maneuverable, impressive and (ahem) visible. Firecat is your showplane.
