His first flight of the aircraft Aero L-60 Brigadyr made in 1953 year, while initially a test flight was declared invalid - blame were numerous mistakes made during the design of the aircraft, however, a year later, after a series of the done modifications, the plane could up in the air, and then almost immediately sent aircraft into mass production.
On board the aircraft Aero L-60 Brigadyr can accommodate up to 3 passengers, as a consequence, the aircraft are more designed for flights on neprotyazhёnnym in routing and local airlines, although the actual distance that the aircraft is about 720 km.

Modification of the Aero L-60E Brigadyr is a version of a medical aircraft, operation of which is practically not carried out due to insufficient amount of interior space, as well as low speed and moving distance.
In 1956 year was presented modification Aero L-60S Brigadyr, is an improved version of the aircraft manufacturing base established here more powerful aircraft engine (260 hp) radial type.
