Plane information

The Yak-52 is a soviet training plane which has been used by the Georgian, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Romanian, Russian and Vietnamese air forces. It shares virtually all its instrumentation with the MIG and SUKHOI fighters. Our plane is equipped with a 400hp, nine-cylinder Vedeneyev M-14 PF engine, as a well as German MT propeller, which provides a little more thrust that the Russian original.

The plane's military pedigree makes this the perfect experience for thrill seekers, as well as romantics who want to enjoy a piece of aviation history.
