Yakovlev Yak-112

The last aircraft design competition in the Soviet Union was for a two-seat primary trainer for DOSAAF and aero clubs. Yakovlev of course competed. The Yak-112 was the outright winner, but it has subsequently been developed as a multi-role four-seater.

Unlike so many konversiya aircraft, the Yak-112 seems assured of commercial success. A model was displayed in 1990, a mock-up in 1991 and the first flight was made on 20 October 1992 (a recent Russian article gives the date as 27 May 1993). Yakovlev claim that by mid-1993 orders totalled 500, including large numbers from India and South American countries. Production is in hand at two plants, Smolensk and Irkutsk.

There are so many of these small Russian and European aircraft that would have been welcome in the North American market. They were (and are) sturdy and reliable planes. This one in particular is a great little design with very good range.
