Change of plan and first few days in Latin America

How did the whole journey begin? Everything started with an accepted invitation to an important air show in Buenos Aires, scheduled for the end of 1958. The fair was to become the gateway for the Czechoslovak aviation industry trying to expand into new, exotic markets, which South America undoubtedly was at that time. OMNIPOL was supposed to present L-40, L-60 and Z-226 aircraft. They were chosen because they had already proven their quality with both domestic and foreign customers, and it was expected that they would shine at the exhibition and attract more buyers.

With Czechoslovak Aircraft on the other side of the world

Experience a legendary adventure in South America! In the 1950s, under the leadership of the company Foreign Trade Enterprise (FTE) OMNIPOL, a famous trip across Latin America took place, which has had no parallel before or since. During this expedition, the pride of the Czechoslovak aviation industry was presented to the local audience. Even after many decades, it is a unique event that raised awareness of our country and capabilities in faraway places. During it’s six-month duration, there was no shortage of interesting meetings, but also nerve-wracking situations both on the ground and in the air, including dramatic flights over the Cordilleras and a tragic crash in São Paulo that claimed the life of one of the pilots.
