The aircraft model Zlin 22 Junak was the projected Czechoslovak aircraft manufacturers almost immediately after the Second World War, as the main purpose of the aircraft was the introduction of the aircraft in the field of civil aviation, with the possibility of operating in the military sphere, which in fact made the aircraft a multi-purpose and multi-functional .

At its core, the plane is almost a complete copy of the aircraft Bucker Bu 381, which appeared before the outbreak of the Second World War, however, the new model was more effective in terms of its operational capabilities, and could not be better suited to the needs of light aircraft. By reducing the size of the aircraft, the aircraft Zlin 22 Junak become more agile, ensuring greater security in the implementation of air travel.

The Zlin 22 Junak aircraft made its first flight in 1947, and due to the fact that the need for this aircraft was growing, the project was almost immediately put into mass production, where, however, it was only for a few years, during which the Czechoslovak aircraft company managed to build 200 copies of this aircraft, most of which continue to operate to this day.

Depending on the aircraft, the plane can be used piston aircraft engines ranging from 57 hp to 105 hp, which accordingly affects the performance characteristics of this model. Basic production version of the aircraft Zlin 22 Junak was equipped with a piston aircraft engine thrust in 75 hp, allowing the aircraft to accelerate to cruising speed in 160 km \ h, while the maximum range of the following aircraft is 650 kilometers.
