Russia will buy 105 new primary trainer Yak-152

Russian Volunteer Society for Cooperation with the Army, Aviation, and Fleet (Russian: DOSAAF) will buy 105 Yak-152 primary trainer.

The Yak-152 is a single-engine, two-seater, low-wing monoplane of a classical configuration with a retractable tricycle landing gear with nose wheel and the M-14X engine. Shock-absorbing properties of the landing gear with low pressure tires, short takeoff and landing run make it possible to operate the aircraft on small unprepared airfields.

The aircraft-mounted equipment enables the pupil-pilot to acquire the skill of using the up-to-date flight-navigation, radio communication and aiming equipment.The Yak-152 has a tandem cockpit configuration for two pilots. The front seat is intended for the pupil-pilot, the rear one is for the instructor. One crew member may fly the aircraft from either seat. The aircraft is equipped with the SKS-94M ejection system to provide safe escape for crew members.
