Yak-18T, 1967
Light four-seat multi-purpose aircraft with retractable gear and variable prop pitch. Of 537 aircraft initially produced between 1975 and 1982, plus 60-odd since 1993, there remain less than 200 within FSU. Being designed as ad initio training aircraft, the Yak-18T is capable of aerobatics including inverted figures. The Yak-18T can be operated at night and with some modifications, in IFR conditions. Being of fairly simple design, the 18T is very easy to operate and a pleasure to fly. A popular option is a luggage compartment additional 120-litres fuel tank.
