The Navy of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) received four Russian amphibious aircraft LA-8, according to a blog by Yuri Lyamin.


The CSIR received Russian amphibious aircraft LA-8


These machines will be used by the Navy's IRGC for patrols, search and rescue operations, etc. The solemn ceremony of the transfer of amphibians took place in Bandar Abbas.



The number of vehicles delivered is the same as what should have been delivered to Iran under the contract of December 2011, given that one car crashed during the tests. True, then nothing was said about who, in Iran, they ultimately intended.

We remind you that 29 July 2012 LA-8, heading for the city of Rasht, crashed in the city of Bender-Enzeli, located near Tehran. The plane touched the rock with a wing at the moment of take-off, but as a result, none of the three people on board were injured.

      It’s nice to know that our aircraft are being bought. Yes, albeit not in Europe, but they are.

        There is only Russian work. Fiberglass, resins, engines, screws, avionics, etc. - everything is imported ...
        The power-to-weight ratio of them is weak. How will they be exploited in hot climates? With restrictions.
        But, as a business project "Iran-Russia" - definitely, well done!

      We have them, private traders order. For some paramilitaries, I would not recommend it. Still, these products are more sharpened by private owners, fly over the Volga, drive away for fishing ...
      As part of a routine inspection, he visited the NGO AeroVolga. Last year, two LA-8s stood on the site in the fall, waiting for shipment to Iranian customers. I also wrote a protocol to the director for violating the parking rules of these seaplanes (they were not anchored, which is prohibited by the FAP) laughing
      The children are graduates of our aerospace, they make equipment - they themselves get pleasure and people are pleased good

        The theme of operation and use of ultralight and light aircraft in power structures has always been interesting. Unfortunately, this topic is usually not too widely represented.
