The Valmet L-70 Vinka is a single-engine aircraft designed for beginners in Finland.

The development began in 1970. The first prototype (named LEKO-70) flew for the first time on July 1, 1975. Serial production began on January 15, 1977. The L-70 was replaced in 1980 as a replacement for the Saab Safir in Finnish Air strike forces. The Finnish Air Force issued an order for 30 aircraft to Valmet. The first aircraft was delivered in February 1980, the last 1982. 28 of the machines are still in operation.

Valmet tried to market the L-70 Vinka internationally under the name L-70 Miltrainer; But this failed as no single order was received.

The aircraft is driven by an air-cooled box motor with a hard-core twin-blade metal-air screw and is designed in a conventional all-metal half-shell configuration with a rigid nose wheel gear and as a deep deck. Students and teachers sit side by side.
