Yak 54 – 148″ (3.75m)

A classic for any style of acrobatics, from the Russian Yakovlev factory, the Yak 54 is one of the most instantly recognisable outlines in the sky at any club.

Its round fuselage provides some of the nicest roll manoeuvres imaginable and with our kit the same can be expected.  Designed for slightly more classic 3D, it can still perform all the manoeuvres yet not make the pilot a nervous wreck each time they try something new.  A carefully designed wing section and moderate control surfaces by todays standards make everything happen just that little bit slower, ideal for early 3D steps or if you just love low and slow just inches off the deck!
