First Manufactured in 1976 this Russian designed Military Trainer is made for serious fun flying. Unlimited Aerobatics at +7g to -5g with a roll rate of 180 deg per second and inverted flight capability there is no limit on what can be achieved to thrill a pilot. The Yak 52 is powered by the very rugged and reliable Vedneyev M14p 9 cylinder radial engine producing 360hp.
Inspired by the Yak18 but completely transformed by its Chinese designers, the Nanchang CJ6 is a graceful performer. originally fitted with a 285hp engine, many owners have upgraded to the Russian engine fitted as standard to the Yak 52, the ever reliable and rugged M14p 360hp radial. With this lift in performance they really motor along
Other warbird types of similar performance are welcome. We currently have a T34 Mentor and a Wirraway joining in our formations and tactics exercises.
We even have a Bell 47 helicopter in the mix providing tactical support and mission specific activities.
The CT4 has fitted right into our activities.
