If one of your childhood dreams was to actually "fly" a plane, and be able to look down at the earth from a bird's eye view – we can make that dream come true! FLY a Yak-18!
The first postwar design was the Yak-18 of 1946, a two-seat tandem trainer with a 160hp radial engine, variable pitch propeller and retractable undercarriage superficially similar to the earlier UT-2, but a much more advanced aircraft. This was a huge success, adopted by flying clubs and military alike. Yuri Gagarin learned to fly in one.
The Yak 18T, another post-war design, is a four seat retractable aeroplane designed for cross-country work. It has excellent short field performance and is stressed for aerobatics. Modified and updated for Western use, by adding instrumentation illumination, intercom, and a landing headlight. The 18T is an excellent all-round, all-weather performer, comfortable and spacious inside, with good endurance, load-carrying capacity and cruise performance.
The plane is simple to steer and service, reliable and trouble-free, even if a little heavy on the controls, because it was built for flight training and aerobatics. Nine world records were established in Yak-18. It is still successfully used in a number of foreign countries.
The climax of your flight would be when the pilot asks you if you like to take over the controls for a while. Just think... you would be piloting a Yak-18!
You will have twenty five minutes of boundless euphoria and pleasure! You must not forget to take your camera with you!
