Zlín Z-142

Development continued, with the Zlín Z 142 , featuring a slightly enlarged two-seat airframe based on that of the Z 42 and the more powerful (157 kW (210 hp)) Walter (now LOM) M 337 fuel-injected inverted six-cylinder, supercharged air-cooled engine of the Z 43 replacing the unsupercharged LOM M137 engine of the Z 42. The prototype Z-142 first flew on 29 December 1978.[3]

In the late 1980s, further development work was initiated. The inverted inline engine was replaced with a four-cylinder horizontally-opposed Lycoming IO-360 engine. This variant is designated the Z 242 , and is immediately distinguishable by its relatively wide cowling which houses the flat-four engine.

Licence production of the Z 142 has been carried out in Algeria by ECA Fernas (sometimes known as just Fernas) as the ECA-Fernas 142 , complete with aerobatic modifications.[

Hey! Only 1 photo is allowed per feature request, and make sure, if you haven’t already, to credit the picture source, thanks! But anyways, I think this plane would make a cool addition, but I don’t want to vote unless it picks up in popularity. Cool request though!
