This light aircraft was developed by Czech aircraft engineers 2010 year, and, the design of the fuselage is very similar to the design of a motorized glider, however, in fact, the aircraft belongs to the class of light aircraft. Its first flight model Distar UFM-13 Lambada made in 1996, and a few months later, starting from the end of 1996, began to be mass-produced.

The main reason that the aircraft Distar UFM-13 Lambada belong to the class of motorized gliders is a very large wingspan, which is a characteristic feature of these aircraft. In fact, the aircraft is capable of moving in ascending and descending air flows, which in turn allows for sufficiently long air travel.

The Distar UFM-13 Lambada model did not receive a large distribution mainly due to the limited functionality of this aircraft - its commercial operation is not expedient due to low passenger capacity. On board the aircraft can accommodate only two people, while the aircraft is suitable for air travel at distances up to 780 kilometers. The aircraft is not adapted for the transportation and transportation of goods due to the rather small payload received on board, and also because of the limited space in the cockpit of the aircraft.

The four-cylinder piston air-cooled Rotax 912ULS aircraft engine with an 100 hp capacity is used as a power plant; however, the maximum speed developed by the aircraft is limited only to 185 km / h, which is also one of the negative aspects of this model. Initially, it was supposed to create a modification based on this version, equipped with a more efficient aircraft engine, however. In the end, due to the lack of orders, the decision was canceled.

It is unusual is the location of the wings of the aircraft - the majority of the aircraft are located either at the bottom or at the top, however, the model Distar UFM-13 Lambada wings are located in the middle part, which according to experts is one of the reasons for the rather low airspeed.

In the period from 1996 to 2014, only 26 aircraft of this model were built year, moreover, despite the low cost, which is about 2015 thousand dollars in the middle of 75 year, the customers practically do not use the aircraft, so the issue of removing this model from production.
