Yakovlev Yak-112


The Yak-112 - Russian production unit, which is intended to carry passengers or cargo by weight small. It is developed by Yakovlev Design Bureau as a multi-purpose aircraft, while it has a fairly small mass. On board can only accommodate three passengers. Due to the unique design it can be used in the training of pilots and for patrol and rescue operations. The first Yak-112 broke away from the runway in the autumn of 1992 years.

Design features of the Yak-112

This unit is manufactured as an all-metal high podkosny which has a sufficiently large glass cockpit. For the landing and takeoff designers equipped it with tricycle fixed landing gear. Wings machines are located high, which allows glazing with increased review of the pilot. Despite its compact size, the aircraft has the ability to carry three people on board, and the location quite comfortable and spacious. This was achieved by increasing the geometric parameters of the cab.


The advantage of the Yak-112 is that it needs a relatively small runway. New pneumatic shock absorbers make it possible to operate it even on unpaved airfields, which are practically not prepared. A very small run, just 350 meters, and the run at landing in 230 meters allow using it even in quite extreme conditions. To make a detachment from the runway, it is enough to disperse the aircraft to the speed of 125 km / h. This aircraft can also be used in winter due to the installation of a ski chassis, which also allows landing on unprepared runways.

On the plane Yak-112 possible to install motors 260 horsepower. Moreover, the manufacturers of such power plants are two different companies, namely, Textron Lycoming and Teledyne Continental Motors. The propulsion system drives a three-bladed propeller, which is made of metal. These screws are produced to order in the United States, namely the company Hartzell.


With regard to the onboard equipment, it may also have a different configuration and options, depending on the order. All the equipment of the aircraft can be both domestic production and foreign, namely the company Bendix King. Due to the high quality and new navigation equipment, which our designers have equipped aircraft, flying the Yak-112 can be carried out only in accordance with their performance. In addition, the machine allows you to carry out flights at any time of the day and even fairly complex meteorological conditions.


With all this, the mass of the aircraft is small enough and reaches an index of 1,3 tons, in addition, it can lift the load of 475 kilograms. As for fuel for the power plant, it is placed in one tank with a total capacity of 180 kilograms. The aircraft has a very large operational period, which equals 10 thousand flight hours or 20 years of service. Due to the small dimensions and compact design, only one pilot can control the aircraft. Despite all the simplicity and convenience, the aircraft type Yak-112 can reach speeds of up to 250 km / h, while the fuel stock is enough for 2 thousands of miles of flight. The maximum height reaches an index of 4 kilometers above sea level.

Yak-112 cabin

On the basis of the standard models were designed and manufactured, and other modifications. Thus, it developed a similar device, which can be transported 6 passengers. This model had a fuselage of a little more than the original machine. Six-Yak-112 was developed at the end of the year 1998. It is also considering options in this series of aircraft with other power plants. Device was fabricated which had a float chassis.
