The Yak-130 combat trainer will take part in Dubai Airshow 2019 for the first time. The exhibition will be held from 17 to 21 November in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

During the flight program, the aircraft under control of test-pilot Vasily Sevastianov and test-navigator Mikhail Kudryashov will demonstrate its high maneuverability. The first training session in the Dubai sky was held on November 14, 2019.

The new generation Yak-130 combat trainer is developed by the Yakovlev Design Bureau (a part of Irkut Corporation) and serially produced at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant.

Yak-130 makes it possible to train pilots for Russian and foreign combat aircraft of the "4+" and "5th"generation at a state-of-the-art level.

In 2016, the Yak-130 aircraft set 9 world records in the rate of climbing to various altitudes with and without payload.

Since February 2010, the Yak-130 aircraft have been delivered to the Russian aerospace forces and are successfully operated in aviation training centers. Since 2011, Yak-130 have been exported to Belarus, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Laos.
