Design of multi-purpose aircraft model Zlin Z 126 was deployed Czechoslovak engineers in the early 30-ies of the last century, at the same time, the new aircraft is intended mainly use as the training aircraft, which originally took place, however, since the mid 40-ies, the aircraft is also very active and operated for private purposes and as a training aircraft in the armed forces.

Aircraft Zlin Z 126 has a fairly compact dimensions of its fuselage, the aircraft that provides a very high rate of maneuverability, enabling its use in even in spite of the relatively low-power power plant as a sports aircraft. It was assumed that the aircraft will also be used to perform aerobatic stunts, however, low resistance to negative overload, which is caused by the strength of the wing, did not provide an opportunity for the operation of aircraft in this area.

The multipurpose aircraft model Zlin Z 126 produced its first flight in 1935 year, and in view of the fact that Czechoslovak aircraft designers qualified enough for the design of the aircraft, the project was able to successfully complete the necessary tests, which ensured the possibility of launching it into batch production. For the entire period of production, aircraft builders from Moravan Otrokovice built 167 aircraft of this model, of which, to date, only a few have survived, some of which are privately owned, and the other part is an exposition of aviation and technical museums.

In the cockpit Zlin Z 126 aircraft can accommodate up to two people at the same time, the cabin itself has a sufficiently large volume of space, which in turn provides adequate comfort for flights, however, for several reasons related to the characteristics of the aircraft construction, transportation in the cabin aircraft of any goods is not possible, which, incidentally, was not reflected in the popularity of this model.

Multi-purpose aircraft Zlin Z 126 equipped with a piston aircraft engine brand Walter Minor 4-III, having a towing capacity of 105 hp, however, even a relatively small capacity, the aircraft is able to smoothly overcome the distance at distances in kilometers at cruising 600 the speed of its flight in 190 km \ h., while the maximum speed of the aircraft moving 205 km \ h.
