His first flight of the aircraft Aero L-60 Brigadyr made in 1953 year, while initially a test flight was declared invalid - blame were numerous mistakes made during the design of the aircraft, however, a year later, after a series of the done modifications, the plane could up in the air, and then almost immediately sent aircraft into mass production.

On board the aircraft Aero L-60 Brigadyr can accommodate up to 3 passengers, as a consequence, the aircraft are more designed for flights on neprotyazhёnnym in routing and local airlines, although the actual distance that the aircraft is about 720 km.

As the power plant, on the aircraft Aero L-60 Brigadyr used a six-cylinder reciprocating air-cooled aircraft engine Praga Doris M 208-B, allowing to develop the capacity of 190 hp, with a top speed of flight of the aircraft is quite small - just 193 km \ h, which is of little use to overcome even short distances.

Version Aero XL-60 is the original prototype, issued in a single copy, and subsequently dismantled.

Modification of the Aero L-60 Brigadyr considered the main production version of this model series. Mainly used to transport goods, and in some cases for passenger transportation.

Modification of the Aero L-60E Brigadyr is a version of a medical aircraft, operation of which is practically not carried out due to insufficient amount of interior space, as well as low speed and moving distance.

In 1956, a modification of the Aero L-60S Brigadyr was introduced, which is an improved basic production version of the aircraft, installed here with a more powerful aircraft engine (260 hp) of the radial type.

In 1958 year, Czechoslovak aircraft manufacturers have presented a model Aero L-60SF Brigadyr, which has a powerful radial aircraft engine M-462RF. Flight performance of an aircraft has changed only slightly, and the success of this aircraft to no avail.
