Design of multi-purpose aircraft began Czechoslovak aircraft manufacturers in the first half 50-ies. In fact, the aircraft design was based on a model airplane Zlin Z 26However, due to the fact that the aircraft manufacturers to greatly improve the aircraft, and, this applies also to changes in design, and technical improvements, the aircraft became more effective in terms of its operational capacity, which made it a separate model.

Czechoslovak engineers and designers managed to achieve compactness of the aircraft fuselage structure and to ensure the aircraft is very high rate of aerodynamics, which led to the fact that the aircraft was very agile and well manageable - these factors are among the most important for training aircraft and sports aircraft ships to which the class belongs and the plane model Zlin Z 226.

Initially it was assumed that the Zlin Z 226 model aircraft will be operated solely as educational and training tools, however, the new development is very much intrigued and private owners, which is why the popularity of this model of aircraft has increased to a great extent.

The first flight of the multipurpose aircraft Zlin Z 226 held in 1955 year, and due to the fact that virtually identical to the aircraft design has previously been subjected to necessary lёtnym and technical testing, the project was able to successfully complete all of the required tests, which is why, in the same year, the plane began to mass-produced, and, in sufficiently large quantities - for the entire period of the Czechoslovak aircraft manufacturers release 364 aircraft of this model were built, of which up to now has remained no less than a hundred of these aircraft.

On board the aircraft model Zlin Z 226 can accommodate up to two people, including one pilot and one passenger, while, at the moment the plane of the model is operated primarily as the training, or private aircraft, but there are cases when the aircraft and applied for the carriage of passengers. Because of the design features of the model aircraft may not be used for transportation of goods, however, this opportunity was not originally laid aircraft designers.

Multiple models of aircraft Zlin Z 226 powerplant equipped piston type, consisting of a single motor brand Walter Minor 6-III, which in its ability to power a set in 158 hp, can accelerate the aircraft to a maximum airspeed in 300 km \ h . Limit the distance non-stop flight of the aircraft of this model is 480 kilometers.
