4/16/1969: Maiden Flight of the Let L-410

DALLAS – Today in Aviation, The prototype of the Let L-410 Turbolet (registration OK-60), then known as the XL-410, took to the skies on its maiden flight in 1969. At the controls were Let pilots Vladimir Vik and Ing. František Svinka.

The aircraft is a 15-seat, unpressurised, high-wing regional airliner powered by the Walter M601 engine. However, delays in the development of the power plant led to early models being powered by the Pratt & Whitney PT6-27 engines.

Aeroflot utilised the L-410 on regional domestic flights across Russia. (Igor Dvurekov, CC BY-SA 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0, via Wikimedia Commons)
