Z 326 TrenerMaster and single seat Z 326A Akrobat introduced retractable undercarriage, a feature that became standard on all subsequent models. Deliveries began in 1959.

The Z 526 Trener differed in that the pilot flew the aircraft from the rear, rather than the front seat, with optional tip tanks and a constant speed prop

The original Z-26 was designed in late 1940s and produced in 1946 by the Czechoslovakian company, Moravan to meet a requirement for a basic trainer to replace the Bücker Jungmann and Bestmann. It was a low-winged monoplane of mixed construction, with wooden wings and a welded metal tube fuselage
