Russia’s Yak-130 Combat Trainers Arrive in Armavir
Five Yak-130 combat trainers adopted by the Russian Air Force have made a flight from Irkutsk to Armavir. This was reported by Colonel Igor Klimov, a spokesman for the Russian Air Force.
“The pilots of the Russian Air Force’s Training Scientific Center have made the longest flight (more than 5,500 kilometers) on board the Yak-130 combat training aircraft. They have made stopovers in Novosibirsk, Chelyabinsk and Borisoglebsk to refuel the aircraft equipment,” Mr. Klimov stated, noting that eight aircraft of this type are currently stationed at the training air base located in Armavir.
It should be noted that the Yak-130 is a two-seat combat trainer designed for providing basic, advanced and tactical pilot training for all current and prospective combat aircraft, as well as engaging ground and aerial targets by day and night in visual and adverse weather conditions.
