Despite its earlier number, the Yak-54
was actually developed from the
Yak-55M, to replace the Yak-56. It is
the OKB's latest aerobatic trainer, with
the airframe of the Yak-55M modified
with an instructor cockpit added at the
rear, and with redesigned undercarriage
main legs raked further forward,
a taller fin, redesigned rudder and
elevators, three-blade propeller and
minor changes to the engine installation
(for example, additional coolingair
exit louvres). The cockpits are
covered by a single canopy hinged to
the right, behind a smaller fixed windscreen.
Remarkably, the structure is
stressed to the even higher negative
load factor of —7.
Project manager is D K Drach,
chief engineer V M Popkov and the
OKB test pilots are A S Vyatkin and A
A Sinitsyn (chief Yak-141 test pilot).
Painted in a new scheme of white,
green and red, the unflown prototype
was shown at the 1993 Paris airshow,
bearing no marking but the airshow
number 310. Later it was given the
cryptic registration 01001 and first
flown on 24 December 1993, the pilot
not being one of those assigned to the
programme but Sh Z Khamidulin.
Production will be at Saratov.

Where does the Yak 55SP fit in to this mix. I have a RC model of this plane and wonder why it is not included in your site.

I am trying to find out the cowel diameter of the Yak 54. If the drawings here are scale I can figure it out. The Yak 54 is a beautiful aircraft.
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
