Training aircraft Yak-152

64
Yak-152 is a piston trainer aircraft for initial training and professional selection of pilots at an early stage of training. The aircraft is part of the Yak-130 combat training complex and also includes a procedural simulator, a training computer class, and means of objective control. The Yak-152 aircraft was developed by specialists of OKB im. A.S. Yakovleva ”, which today is part of PJSC“ Irkut Corporation ”.


The first Yak-152 training aircraft was built at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, a branch of Irkut Corporation PJSC. The developers of this model relied on the rich experience of OKB im. A. S. Yakovleva in design aviation training techniques. Since 1935, more than 22 thousand training piston aircraft of this design bureau have been produced in our country and abroad: UT-2, Yak-11, Yak-18, Yak-52. The development and preparation of the production of the Yak-152 training aircraft are based on the use of the latest Russian design solutions and developments in the field of small aviation.

September 29 The 2016 of the year at the aerodrome of the Irkutsk Aviation Plant took place the first flight of the Yak-152 training aircraft for the initial flight training. The plane lifted into the sky a test pilot of the 1 class, OAO OKB im. A. S. Yakovleva »Vasily Sevastyanov. According to him, the flight mission was performed in full, the plane behaved normally. According to Viktor Bondarev, Commander-in-Chief of the All-Union Military Space Council of Russia, the tests of the aircraft should be completed by March of 2017, after which the Yak-152 is scheduled for mass production.

In June 2016, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation ordered 150 Yak-152 aircraft, which are intended for the initial training of future military pilots. Mass production of this model takes place at the facilities of the Irkutsk Aviation Plant. The total demand of the Russian Ministry of Defense for Yak-152 aircraft is estimated by experts in 250-300 units. DOSAAF Russia can purchase even more 100 of such aircraft for its training centers. 16 March 2016 of the year DOSAAF of the Republic of Belarus concluded a framework agreement for the supply of training aircraft Yak-152 for its structures, the number of aircraft purchased under this agreement is not specified.

History Yak-152 training aircraft developed by the Yakovlev Design Bureau, designed for the initial flight training of cadets of the air force, began in the 1990-e years. Then the plane was offered in conjunction with the advanced training aircraft designed at that time — a promising training complex UTK-Yak, which later received the designation Yak-130. The new aircraft was supposed to be created on the basis of the Yak-54 double sport aerobatic training and training, which was built in the 1994-2002 years at the Saratov Aviation Plant, where 14 copies of this vehicle were made. Later, from 2008, at least another 5 of Yak-54 aircraft was produced by Arsenyev Aviation Company named after NI Sazykin. Originally, the projected aircraft was designated as Yak-54М, but in 2000 it was decided to rename it Yak-152. Thus it was emphasized that the machine should be the successor to the popular and very famous "flying party" Yak-52.

In 2001, the design of the Yak-152 aircraft took part in a competition held by the Russian Defense Ministry for a new aircraft of the initial flight training. The main rival was the Su-49, designed by Sukhoi design bureau specialists. Despite the fact that the competition was held, funding for the further development and construction of aircraft by the customer was not allocated. As a temporary measure, Yakovlev proposed to modernize previously produced Yak-52 aircraft to the Yak-52 version. The upgraded training aircraft with updated instrumentation, a new cockpit lantern with improved visibility and an M-14X engine with an MTV-8 propeller first rose to the 16 sky on April 2004, and was tested by state tests in the spring of next year. The aircraft also differed with an increased fuel reserve and the installed SKS-94М crew rescue system. Serial upgrading of already produced Yak-52 to version Yak-52М was planned to be carried out at 308-m aircraft repair plant in Ivanovo, but these plans could not be implemented under those conditions.

At about the same time, genuine interest in the Russian project was shown in the PRC, where the question of developing a new aircraft for the initial training of pilots was no less acute than in the Russian Federation. Already in 2006, Beijing signed a contract with the OKB. A. S. Yakovlev, whose specialists acted as consultants to their colleagues from Hongdu. They helped them develop a new TCB, which received the designation L-7 (the Russian prototype of the Chinese aircraft wore the designation Yak-152K). The first Chinese prototype L-7 was assembled by Hongdu in the autumn of 2010, and in November of the same year, the training aircraft debuted at an air show in Zhuhai.

The case with the Russian version of the aircraft moved off dead center only in the 2013 year, when the first information appeared that the pilots were ready to return to the Russian Defense Ministry about the subject of the new aircraft. 17 March 2014 of the year on the official government procurement portal appeared a notice of the competition for the implementation of the ROC "Development of the training complex of the initial flight training of pilots on the basis of the Yak-152 training aircraft for the needs of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation." According to the results of the competition held by 30 in May of the same year, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation concluded a state contract with OAO OKB im. A.S. Yakovlev. The cost of the contract was 300 million rubles, the deadline is the end of 2016 of the year.

The Yak-152 training aircraft is a two-seater single-engine monoplane, made according to the classic aerodynamic configuration with a low-lying wing, retractable in flight, a three-bearing chassis with a nose wheel and a modern XEDUM-diesel engine RED A12T operating on aviation kerosene. The damping qualities of the aircraft landing gear supports with low-pressure tires, as well as short takeoff lengths during takeoff and landing run, allow the Yak-03 to operate even from small ground airfields.
The glider of the Yak-152 is all-metal except for the trim of the rudders and ailerons that are made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics.

The all-metal fuselage of the semi-monocoque was reinforced by four spars. The one-piece single-wing aircraft wing is made up of biconvex asymmetrical profiles and is equipped with retractable flaps and ailerons, which improve the take-off and landing characteristics of the aircraft. The bearing surface is attached to the fuselage at 4's points, which are located on the side member and rear wall.

The equipment installed on board the aircraft allows novice pilots to acquire the necessary skills for handling modern flight-navigation and sighting equipment, as well as radio communications equipment. For the Yak-152 training aircraft, a tandem layout of the crew members in a double cabin was chosen: the front seat is intended for the student pilot, the back seat is for the instructor. Yak-152 can fly and one crew member from both the front and rear seats. A special feature of the machine is the unique SKS-94М ejection system, which allows for the safe emergency escape of an aircraft by crew members.

The simplicity of the aircraft design, high reliability, approaches to the aggregates and communications of the installed systems provide a high level of ease of maintenance for the Yak-152 with minimal cost to prepare for flights using the minimum amount of public aerodrome facilities. The aerodynamic layout of the wing, the form in the plan and the profiling of the Yak-152 training aircraft were chosen by the designers from the condition of providing the functions of the initial training and training of pilots.

The Yak-152 is designed to train students in piloting techniques and the basics of navigation, mastering the skills of simple, complex and aerobatic flying, as well as piloting the aircraft as part of a group. The aircraft provides a successful solution to the key tasks of the initial flight training in day and night conditions. This machine allows you to provide professional selection, further education and training of novice pilots in both military and civilian aerobatic training centers, pilots-athletes in DOSAAF. The aircraft will be operated in flight schools and in flying clubs throughout the country.

The main directions of training on the plane Yak-152:

• piloting technique, which includes simple, complex and aerobatics;
• basics of navigation;
• implementation of the corkscrew and the withdrawal of the machine from it;
• instrument piloting technique during the flight en route and approach with the use of airfield radio engineering landing systems;
• aircraft piloting technique as part of a group during the day in simple weather conditions, as well as behind the clouds;
• actions of the pilot in special cases.

Avionics of the Yak-152 training aircraft provides:

• display of important information on modern color multifunctional indicators;
• triple reservation of flight-navigation equipment;
• registration of all information on the flight parameters and operation of the aircraft’s systems, as well as the recording of crew members' talks on a secured onboard storage device;
• automatic response to a request from the radar system of state identification and secondary radars of the ATC system (air traffic control).

          The twelve-cylinder RED A03 V12 and the six-cylinder RED A05 V6.
          In 2011, the RED A03 V12 engine successfully completed the next phase of flight tests on the Yak-52 aircraft.
          In the project for the creation of engines one of the main investors is the Russian investment holding FINAM.
          The developer of a new generation diesel engine was RED aircraft GmbH.
          Its founder Vladimir Reikhlin, a world-famous motorist and race car driver, was the first to achieve significant success in creating an efficient diesel engine powered by aviation kerosene, which, in addition to high reliability and economy, would be safe, durable and environmentally friendly.
          The 12-cylinder V-shaped RED A03 diesel engine has a takeoff power of 500 hp. and is intended for use in general aviation (GA).
          Maybe it will brighten up your sadness. smile

        The Brazilian "Tucano", in theory, can also be shot down from a small one. However, try to hit him without anti-aircraft weapons, especially when he is attacking your position ...
        So the armed version is needed! Like a turboprop.
        You can also light armor (Kevlar, high molecular weight polyethylene) to hang on the most vulnerable places.
        For "barmaley" (of course, until they have light Art. ZU and MANPADS), such an aircraft will work no worse than the "Rook", and will be able to fly more often due to higher efficiency.

            EMB-314 Super Tucano - lightweight turboprop attack aircraft Originally designed as a training aircraft, but was subsequently modified to conduct air strikes. The cockpit of the attack aircraft is protected by Kevlar armor.
            the engine can be changed, but:
            Another "counterguerrilla" aircraft, which became widespread, was the Swiss training turboprop aircraft (UTS) - Рilatus PC-7
            A very successful turboprop installed on the plane 650 hp engine.
            RS-7 could carry up to 1040 kg of combat load at 6 nodes of the external suspension. Including: NAR, machine-gun containers, bombs and incendiary tanks.

    But still I want to ask: when will we see the armed version? She would have come in handy, and world experience speaks in favor of such a machine.

    What for? With whom are you going to fight on it? There is no crew protection, it can be easily removed from Kalash. And if you hang armor, guns, missiles on him, he will not be able to fly. For me, it can and can be armed like that, but only for learning the basics of combat use. This is a purely educational option before the same Yak130, well, to maintain the flight skills of combat pilots, so as not to burn the resource of military vehicles. The Americans are quite actively using light vehicles in the army for precisely these purposes.

        So compare the IL-2 and this is the Yak-152 .... and understand why it does not need to be equipped.

          I wonder why now your USA is considering the option of adopting a Toucan for weapons, look at it before upgrading and hanging weapons ...

              TUKANO is a TRAINING aircraft converted into an attack aircraft, so there is something to compare ... Another thing is that the Yak-130 is more suitable as a light attack aircraft. But that's another story.

                The Tucano engine -1000ls. Yak-152-barely barely -500ls. The crew are the same two people. Accordingly, what will be the weight of the payload, fuel and booking ....?

                  And what was the power of the engine in Tukano in its original form, before the afterburner? I ask the numbers in the studio.

    You can safely put it on a par with the Superjet - the quintessence of the import substitution program. Our aviation is now at the same level as after the revolution - there seems to be a need and even enthusiasts are doing something, only the engines have to be taken from abroad. Everything as described in his books by the then young designer Alexander Sergeyevich Yakovlev.

      They really wanted to send this miracle to Afghanistan, but, thank God, they either didn’t find a suicide bomber flying on it, even with the threat of depriving the party membership card, or the inspiration came from someone from the senior governor and simply did not let it go.

    A training aircraft for initial training and professional selection of pilots at an early stage of training for our aviation is definitely needed. In my opinion, it should be structurally simple, easy to pilot and accessible for yesterday’s schoolchild. I saw the Yak-11, piloted the Yak-18, Elki, combat vehicles. Here is the "soul does not lie" with me to this Yak and that's it .... Externally, it seems to me that he does not have the lightness and grace that have always distinguished the Yaki from other machines of this class. It seems to work as if in a "hurry" and therefore there is no delight in the faces of the testers, and, believe me, it always happens if you like the car.

    The engine is "alien", and also a diesel engine. It’s one thing in a car. another thing on the plane. Diesel is “sluggish” when changing flight mode. With him it is difficult to perform figures of complex and aerobatics, especially group. All-metal aircraft, does not require storage in the hangar. You know, this is very conditional here, if we take into account that motorists still prefer at least a metal garage to the "street". Important is the cockpit light with improved visibility, an effective crew rescue system, but, in general, the dimensions and equipment of the cockpit should be as close as possible to the next transition vehicle - the Yak-130. I look at him and I can’t believe that the plane will reach serial production. I don’t understand why today, in the age of jet aviation, to continue to train pilots on a piston machine. More recently, we tested the jet CP-10, a simple and quite interesting car. I started with the "Elka" and then "switched" to the Yak-28 and MiG-21. Nothing, I did it, and I'm not the only one. In civil aviation, foreign experience is interesting. After all, they train pilots not only for Boeing and Airbus, but also for S-130, OTR - 72, and so on.

    I understand that in our difficult time, it is beneficial for an enterprise to receive as much defense order as possible, because it makes it possible to retain personnel and provide people with jobs and salaries, but let's recall the RF law on public procurement: where is an open or closed auction, a competition? It turns out as with kittens - we feed some, drown others.

      Somehow everyone forgets that there are many piston aircraft in operation, the same "Cessna". And if you want to get a PPL (A) license to fly at your own pleasure in a private jet, then a jet car is out of place here.
      Militarism is also good in moderation.

        Have you forgotten how to read anything in Ukraine?
        At the beginning of the article it is clearly stated: "The Yak-152 is a piston trainer aircraft for initial training and professional selection of pilots at an early stage of training. The aircraft is part of the Yak-130 combat training complex and also includes a procedural simulator, a training computer class, and means of objective control. " And what does a private license have to do with flying at your own pleasure?

          For those who are on an armored train.
          I explain step by step.
          1. The previous comment contains the phrase: " So I look at him and I can't believe that the plane will reach mass production. It is not clear to me why today, in the age of jet aviation, continue to train pilots on a piston machine. "
          2. The following comment refers to the previous one, and not to the article as a whole.
          If not clear, read several times.
          If again it is not clear - see the previous paragraph.
          Good luck.

    And in our conditions, in my opinion, without leavened patriotism, the concept of the American Air Tractor would look preferable. And a training aircraft, and a light attack aircraft suitable for anti-terrorist operations, and an agricultural one. A clear asset is a reduction in the cost of production and maintenance, maintainability, stable workload of the manufacturing enterprise for many years. And what a shame, there is a need for each of the above niches, they worked themselves in this direction and suddenly ... Can I object to the "sins" of universalism? But with "Armata", this approach was considered optimal and it works for "partners". Or, again, someone somewhere on the cut "pushed"?

    I suspect that the Yak-152 is roughly the same as the Sukhoi Super Jet.
