The Yakovlev Yak-152 is a Russian primary trainer aircraft from the Yakovlev Design Bureau, part of the Irkut Corporation. The prototype Yak-152 first flew on 29 September 2016, powered by a RED A03 diesel engine, rated at 500 shp (370 kW).[3][4][1] The aircraft has been ordered by the Russian Air Force to replace its current Yakovlev Yak-52 trainers.[1]

Development[edit]

In 2018, after two years of flight tests, the German RED engine selection is questioned as relations between Moscow and the West are chilling. Russian alternative like the VMZ M-9F piston or Klimov VK-800 turboprop would require large adaptations.[5]
