Let-Mont Piper UL aircraft design was carried out on the basis of US-made aircraft Piper PA-15 Vagabond, however, the Czech aircraft manufacturers have made in aircraft construction major changes, with the result that it has become cheaper in terms of its operation and maintenance.
Despite all attempts to design engineers to create a multipurpose aircraft, the aircraft was unable to be effective in the European market due to the fact that there was used low-powered aircraft engine, does not allow the aircraft to take off at a weight of more than 450 kg, as well as all the same reason, the aircraft could not accelerate to high speeds, which is why the entire production cycle was built just 25 aircraft of this model.

Because of rather modest size of the aircraft, the cabin of the aircraft Let-Mont Piper UL also offers a spacious dimensions - here can accommodate only two people at the same time, the use of the airplane, even in the private exploitation seriously limited to a small range of flight of the aircraft, in particular the maximum distance of the model Let-Mont Piper UL is only 560 kilometers.
The release of the aircraft was conducted by Czech aircraft manufacturers in two versions - fully finished and assembled, as well as self-assembly kits, which allowed to greatly save on the purchase of the aircraft. To assemble the aircraft needed about 800 hours, which is quite a bit, however, because of its flight characteristics, the aircraft was unable to achieve great popularity.
Powerplant Let-Mont Piper UL aircraft presented a two-cylinder engine the Rotax 503, able to develop traction in 50 hp, which corresponds to the maximum flight speed of the aircraft in 161 km \ h., While cruising flight speed of 121 km \ h. Due to the fact that the aircraft engine Rotax 503 sufficiently reliable and simple service and maintenance of the aircraft maintenance does not cause high costs, that is a factor in the attractiveness of the aircraft to customers.
