The ZLIN Z 242 L GURU training and fully aerobatic two-seat aircraft demonstrates a good balance between usefulness and superb flight capabilities. It is the result of challenging the ideas and experience of both pilots and engineers to deliver a pleasant and purposeful, yet safe flight experience.

 

AIRCRAFT STRUCTURE

 


A unique all-metal riveted airframe. The main beam of the central wing is furnished with a structural nitrogen overpressure control. The landing gear is also designed to operate on unpaved runways.

 

  • 1090 kg – Max. take-off weight
  • 1056 km – Max. range


The low-wing airplane concept and cabin structure allow unlimited and perfect visibility thanks to non-replicable construction solutions and is an advantage during flight. It offers excellent orientation when landing, taxiing, and in the event of an emergency escape from the cockpit.

The safe-life system is used to monitor and evaluate the lifetime of an airplane. This exceeds 20,000 flight hours.


 

 

 

ENGINE

 


The American Textron Lycoming injection engine, coupled with a constant speed propeller together with excellent airplane flight characteristics and precise and responsive control, allows for all training flight maneuvers to be carried out.
 
The powerful engine allows mastering demanding requirements, primarily by novice pilots. Engine operating time at maximum revolutions is unlimited.
 
The MTV-9-B-C / C-188-18 three-blade composite propeller . The propeller is hydraulically adjustable with constant speed.

 

  • 200 HP at 2400rpm
  • 29 litres per hour in econ. mode



GARMIN AVIONICS

 


Garmin G500 multifunctional avionics adapted for the ZLIN Z 242 L GURU integrates all basic flight and engine instruments into digital screens.

The 3D terrain viewing feature is an invaluable tool. The system is set for maximum use and intuitive control. It allows pilots to gain a unique view of the situation and thus increase crew safety.

Complex data is collected in real-time on two large, adjustable, high-resolution screens.

 



 


AIRCRAFT INTERIOR

 

The spatially exclusive design of the all-glass canopy allows a perfect overview of what is happening around the ZLIN. The canopy opens reliably in all situations in a simple forward motion. It is equipped with a stopping mechanism and an emergency jettison system.
 
The layout of the control elements and instruments contributes to the comfort of the crew. The training aircraft can be controlled from both pilot seats independently.
 
Ergonomically and precisely shaped adjustable seats  are a must component of a ZLIN aircraft today.
