In Irkutsk continues test flights of Yak-130 Air Force Bangladesh

In Irkutsk continues test flights of Yak-130 Air Force Bangladesh. In January 2014 Bangladesh ordered 24 Yak-130. The aircraft will be bought with an extended loan from Russia.

The Yakovlev Yak-130 (NATO reporting name: Mitten) is a subsonic two-seat advanced jet trainer/light attack aircraft or lead-in fighter trainer originally developed by Yakovlev and Aermacchi. Development of the plane began in 1991, and the maiden flight was conducted on 26 April 1996. In 2002, it won a Russian government tender for training aircraft, and in 2009 the aircraft entered service with the Russian Air Force.
