The Yakovlev Yak 52

The Yak-52 is a Soviet built military trainer boasting a 360hp 9 cylinder radial engine with supercharger. If it sounds powerful, that’s because it is!

The Yak is built strong and was primarily used as a basic & aerobatic military trainer, and is still used todayfor this purpose in Russia and Romania. The interior layout was designed to mimic Soviet jets making transition to aircraft such as the MiG 17 and MiG 21 fairly straight forward for pilots.

Our Yak was built in 1985 and operated with the Russian Military for a number of years before being bought by a private owner in the Ukraine. It was imported into Australia in 2004 and has been operating Adventure Flights ever since.
