    More Information

    Aboout your aircraft - Yak 52

    First designed in the 1970’s the Yak is  still being manufactured and used by Air Forces all over the world. The Yak 52 was designed with one thing in mind - Aerobatics! Over 1800 of the type have been manufactured with the super-charged M14P engine giving a whopping 360 Hp and with it’s straight wing and span length ailerons can roll at over 180 degrees per second and snap roll even faster!

    To the untrained eye the Yak and Chinese built Nanchang look very similar but given that the Yak was built for aerobatics it has a straight wing and much larger control services. It also uses more steel in it’s construction and has external as opposed to flush rivets.
