The Czech Defense Ministry has signed a deal to deliver 14 military airplanes to the United States in an $11 million deal.
Draken has an option on a further 14 other planes.
The light combat and training planes were made by Aero Vodochody between 1999 and 2003. The Czech army had been unsuccessfully trying to sell them since 2004 because it has no use for them.
The Czechs were also negotiating a possible sale of the same planes to Iraq.
