About Us

Your Pilot

Ian Eccles has been flying aircraft professionally for over 35 years.  

Learning to fly with the Royal Australian Air Force at the age of 18, Ian is now a commercial Pilot with QANTAS Airways.

The Aircraft

The  Yakovlev model 52 trainer was designed by the A.S. Yakovlev Bureau in  Soviet Russia as the successor to their model 18 trainer.

The  Yak-52 was designed originally as an aerobatic trainer for students in  the Soviet DOSAAF training organisation, which trained both civilian  sport pilots and military pilots. Since the early 1990s and the fall of  the Soviet Union, many Yak 52s have been exported to the west. Of the  approximately 1,800 produced to date, most now fly in the United States,  United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia and other western countries.
 

The Yak 52 is an all-metal, fully aerobatic machine with excellent performance and remarkable strength.  

The  aircraft provides excellent handling from basic training through to  advanced aerobatic training with "g" limits of +7 -5g with 2 crew.

The sturdy and reliable Vendeneyev M-14P/360 HP is the world's last in production radial engine.

The aircraft can be operated from hard runways, unimproved surfaces or even snow when fitted with skis.

Maintenance  is conducted to the highest standards.   The Yak-52  offers performance and ease of operation, second-to-none.
