Default L-39 manual errors & typos

Hello there!

I'm not sure whether this belongs here or rather in the 1.5 beta bug forum, but anyways, I thought we should help ED by pointing out typos and errors in L-39 manual, so here it goes:
Especially the first chapter (L-39 history), contains many errors in the names of persons or places, that are very obvious to native speaker (often it seems they were directly transliterated from Cyrillics).
So far I noticed those:

p.10 - "Igri Mateicek" should be "Jiri Matejcek"
from p.11 onwards, "Rudolf Duhon" should be "Rudolf Duchon"
p.12 contains very amusing error, photo description mentions "Charles Long", although his real name, Karel Dlouhy, is mentioned on p.9 (Charles Long is literal translation from Czech)
p.15 - "Turbomecca" should be "Turbomeca"
p.16 - "Viecna" should be "Vlecna" instead
p.16 also mentions "Rude Letov" factory, although correct name, "Rudy Letov", is used earlier (I also have my doubts about the name "Jan Zranz" mentioned on that page, although I'm unable to find any info on this man - however, the spelling seems very weird)
p.21 - "Zagranicny Obchod" should be "Zahranicni Obchod"
p.24 - "Trencsen" would look better with correct Slovak spelling of "Trencin" - "Trencsen" is rather Hungarian spelling, or at least I don't know that English spells it like that too

So if you find anything wrong with the manual, feel free to add it to this thread. Hopefully, it will help ED make it even better.

Thank you for your help. Please report all the errors that you find.
I will make sure they will be fixed in future updates.

Sapfir 5 -> Saphir 5 (page 15)

And all those names mentioned above should have diacritics as well:

Jiří Matějček
Rudolf Duchoň
Vlečná
Karel Dlouhý
Rudý Letov
Zahraniční Obchod
Trenčín

I think all characters should be displayed without any problems

In the cockpit, instead of the word flicker for the lights, it should read flash.

Then we should also add Jan Vlček, Letňany (both p.9), Cvičná (p.17), Štefan Župko (p.24) and Košice (p.25).

Yes, I actually wanted to read it first and then edit the post but you were faster :) Also:

Jan Zranz -> Jan Franc (18)
test pilot Shouc -> test pilot Juraj Šouc (22)

Depends on the context, but I assume that you are right. When something "flickers" it usually indicates a faulty type of irregular flicker. A "flashing" light indicates a regular pulse.

From the pictures of L-39s I've seen that has english cockpit labels, flash is the word used.
