Yak-130

Як-130
Development: JSC “A.S. Yakovlev Design Bureau”
Maiden flight: 1996
The design phase: Production:

The Yak-130 two-seat operational trainer provides for the basic and advanced training of pilots for existing and future warplanes, including generation “4++” and “5” ultra-maneuverable fighters.

The guided and unguided weapons systems allow for the effective use of the Yak-130 both in training and on combat missions.  

The long service life and low operating cost offered by the Yak-130 minimize initial and recurrent airforce-pilot operational training costs.

The Yakovlev Design Bureau started the development of a new operational training airplane for the Russian Air Force in the early 1990s.

The innovative concept was completed and approved by the Ministry of Defense of Russia in 1993. The design was recommended for full-scale development based on its selection from bids.

Due to lack of funding from the government, the management of Yakovlev Design Bureau decided to implement the project in cooperation with Aermacchi (Italy). Cooperation under this program continued from 1993 to 1999.

A test pilot from the Yakovlev Design Bureau, Andrey Sinitsyn, operated the first flight of the Yak-130D demonstration airplane from Gromov airfield on April 25, 1996.

The Yak-130 was declared the winner of the Russian Defense Ministry’s tender on April 16, 2002.

Senior test pilot of the Yakovlev Design Bureau, Hero of Russia Roman Taskaev, lifted off on the first Yak-130, in full production configuration manufactured at the Sokol aircraft-manufacturing plant in Nizhny Novgorod, on April 30, 2004.

The Irkutsk Aviation Plant, where the digitalized production of the Yak-130 had been arranged, and which later would become the exclusive supplier of the new airplane, joined the production effort in 2006.
Official tests were successfully completed in 2009.

These airplanes have been operated by the Russian Air Force since February 2010, and exported by the Irkut Corporation since 2011.

A contract for delivery of a large batch of Yak-130 airplanes was signed by the RF Ministry of Defense and PJSC Irkut Corporation in December 2011.

PJSC Irkut Corporation has delivered Yak-130 airplanes to the Russian Air Force since October 2012.

Presently, the Irkut Corporation performs the entire scope of work listed under the Yak-130 program:

- Improvements are designed by the A. Yakovlev Engineering Center – the main design unit of PJSC Irkut Corporation;

- Production is concentrated at Irkutsk Aviation Plant, a branch of PJSC Irkut Corporation;

- PJSC Irkut Corporation provides for the marketing, sale, supply, and after-sales service of Yak-130s, collaborating with the RF Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation and OJSC Rosoboronexport in compliance with applicable Russian legislation.
