Long Description:
Kunovice Aviation Museum was founded in 1970 by members of the Moravian Aeroclub, Alois Hrácek and Jirí Marek. Initially it was built as a museum or cooperative aircraft produced in a factory in Kunovice (visit link) .

The air museum at Kunovice focuses its exhibition primarily on aircraft built by the Let company (visit link) , which has its headquarters at the Kunovice airport (visit link) . Let was originally established as a branch of the Prague based Avia company in 1936 assigned to do maintenance on Avia built aircraft. Let came into its own as a manufacturer in the 1950s initially by producing designs of other companies.

The museum’s collection also includes a selection of former Czechoslovak air force aircraft including MiG-15, MiG-19 and MiG-21 fighter jets as well as Sukhoi Su-7 attack aircraft, a Mil Mi-4 helicopter and two variants of the Avia Av-14 transport, the Av-14 being the Czech license built version of the Illyushin Il-14.


Avia IL-14
The Ilyushin Il-14 (NATO reporting name: Crate) was a Soviet twin-engine commercial and military personnel and cargo transport aircraft that first flew in 1950, and entered service in 1954. Il-14 was also manufactured in East Germany by VVB Flugzeugbau, in Czechoslovakia as the Avia 14.
