    The Ministry of Defense is testing two new training aircraft for the initial training of pilots

    The Russian Ministry of Defense is testing two promising training aircraft at once for training pilots. This was announced by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu at a conference call at the Ministry of Defense.

    According to the head of the military department, the Ministry of Defense is currently testing the Yak-152 and UTS-800 initial flight training trainers. These aircraft are considered by the military as promising for training aviation . The minister stressed that for high-quality training of cadets, it is necessary to have 500 new training aircraft and 200 helicopters.

    At what stage the tests are and other details on the choice of the TCB are not reported.

    Information on the Yak-152 trainer aircraft is available. The development of the Yak-152 training aircraft began in 2014 as part of the ROC with the code "Ptichka-VVS". The first prototype of the aircraft appeared already in 2016. The UAC promised to deliver the first serial Yak-152s for the Ministry of Defense this year.

    Machine length - 7.8 m, wingspan - 8.8 m, area - 12.9 sq. M. Maximum takeoff weight - 1700 kg. The maximum speed is determined at 500 km / h, the range at full refueling (245 kg) is 1500 km. Avionics is unified with the Yak-130 and ensures the creation of a single training complex.

    But there is very little information on the UTS-800 trainer aircraft. It is known that it is being developed by the Ural Civil Aviation Plant (UZGA), the model of the aircraft was presented at the Army-2020 exhibition. The aircraft is equipped with a VK-800 engine, the take-off weight is declared at 2100 kg.

    Quite a bit smaller than the T-27's. Most likely going to stick to the basic trainer role - but it's nice and nimble.

    UTS-800 is more acceptable as it have domestic engine VK-800. But this is more advanced trainer with turboprop engine, similarly to PC-9 and could replace L-39 between basic trainer and Yak-130. Still is question of basic trainer, which Yak-152 should be. They have problems with engine as US put sanctions on Red engines. They have a proper solution for the time, before the question of engine for Yak-152 is solved. RuAF already bought twin engine DA-42 trainers from UZGA for transport aviation school. UZGA also produce single engine DA-40 for civil market, which could be bought for RuAF academies for basic trainers.
