His first flight of the plane Let L-200 Morava made in 1957 year, and almost at the same time it has been launched mass production.

Originally intended to equip the plane Let L-200 Morava fixed chassis, however, during the ongoing test flights, it was found that in this case greatly complicates the management, as a consequence, the chassis design was revised and during the flight, it was retracted inside the fuselage, which among other things somewhat increased maneuverability of the aircraft and its speed.

The main operator of passenger light aircraft Let L-200 Morava was the airline "Aeroflot", which during the Soviet era, there were a few dozen of these aircraft in the aircraft fleet. However, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, these aircraft actually ceased to operate because of the lack of suitable routes.

The power plant of the aircraft is represented by two piston-line engines Walter M337, allowing to develop the capacity of 210 hp one that provided the aircraft is quite acceptable airspeed, and at the same time made it possible without any cost to maintain the aircraft.

On board the Let L-200 Morava was not much space, but, along with this, there could accommodate 4 passengers and a small amount of luggage. The cabin was decorated simply, but nevertheless, considering that the flights were carried out mainly at distances up to thousands of kilometers, with the aircraft capabilities to overcome the distance over 1,7 thousand kilometers, it does not bother the passengers.
