Not all aircraft are created equally, and the feeling of flying in a Yak 52 authentic Russian military aircraft is an extreme exhilaration that can’t be matched. Indulge your adventurous side and get your adrenaline pumping with an unforgettable joy flight over Melbourne.
The Yak 52 is a tiny little plane with a lot of power. It’s capable of speeds of up to 430km/hour and wild aerobatic manoeuvres, though it’s also perfect for a more leisurely ride. For your 25 minute joy ride you can cruise around with the canopy open and maybe get the pilot to try some gentle loops and rolls if you’re feeling game enough.
Before take off you’ll have a thorough briefing about the safety features of the aircraft, what the flight profile will be, how to use the intercom system during the flight, and you’ll be strapped in tight to your safety harness. If you’re an aviation nut, you’ll appreciate the details of the aircraft. The Yak 52 is a 1991 model built for the Russian Air Force, put into storage until 1997 and then imported to Australia due to the collapse of the Soviet Union. So it’s completely decked out with authentic Russian instrumentation and radios, and wears the original military colour scheme.
This is a completely unique aircraft and flight experience that will get your heart racing. So strap in, sit back and enjoy the unbeatable aerial views over Melbourne’s city landscape and surrounding beaches.
