The LET L-410 Turbolet aircraft is a Czechoslovak aircraft designed for communication, as a dispatch machine, sanitary, photogrammetric and other aviation tasks.

L-410 Turbolet in Poland.
The first Polish company to purchase the L-410 UVP Turbolet plane was Przedsiębiorstwo Usług Lotniczych AEROPOL from Warsaw, which was based at the Bemowo Airport. It was May 1988. The L-410 UVP Turbolet aircraft No. 882038 received registration SP-TAA. In the following years, AEROPOL purchased another two machines; SP-TAB, SP-TAC. The planes were painted in brown, orange and white tones.
L-410 aircraft were also operated, in the first decade of the 21st century, by companies whose life on the Polish market was very short. Among others, the White Eagle Aviation company operated the L-410 aircraft, registration SP-FTN, and the Air Polonia company, the L-410 SP-KPZ aircraft.
Without a doubt, the most famous L-410 Turbolet planes in Poland are machines operated by PANSA, which were purchased in 1989. PANSA has (2014) two Turbolet L-410 UVP-E-15 planes with registration marks SP-TPA and SP-TPB.
